Great Discourses

Great Discourses offers intellectually curious adults from all walks of life compelling and convenient opportunities for personal enrichment by connecting great people with great books, great ideas and each other in ways that help participants unlock the mysteries of Western and World classics, and of their own lives — and often lead to great friendships among folks who otherwise would not have met.
