St. John’s University Libraries and the Honors Program invite you to join the Great Books Discussion Group!

Registration and a “meet & greet” meeting will be held today, September 13, 2010 at 4:30 PM in the Honors Commons (1st floor, St. Augustine Hall)

Membership in the Great Books Discussion Group (GBDG) is not limited to students in the Honors Program — it is open to all STJ students, faculty and staff.
