I am interested in visiting your group sometime in Nashville. We are in the process of expanding our Great Books Discussion Group here in Ann Arbor and since your group has been functioning for many years I'd like to find out more about it and possibly participate in one of your discussions. My family lives in Alabama, so my wife and I drive through Nashville on our way down there several times a year. Can you please provide me with some information about how your group works? How many participants do you have each week, or at least on the average? What is required of members? Do you have a moderator and facilitators to help the discussion stay on topic and guide shared inquiry? I understand that you meet once a week at the Nashville Public Library on Tuesday. We also meet weekly on Tuesday evenings 7:00-9:00 PM. What time does your group meet and for how long? Any information about your group or a link that you can provide me with describing in detail how your group works would be very helpful. Thanks.
