Literary Adventures

Adventure for the mind. Travel for the soul.  Explore the visions of writers, thinkers, and artists in locations all over the world where their works were created. Read the books before you leave, join informal discussions moderated by our North American host on site, visit the places described in the texts with local experts, and make connections with people whose lives reflect our selected literary theme.
  • "These trips are like a great book group on a magic carpet ride - connecting readers with the places that give context to the readings." (C.W., Columbus, OH) 
  • Trips are led by discussion leaders who have mastery of their subject
  • We follow the Great Books Foundation Shared Inquiry method of discussion
  • Read before you arrive; we’ll send you the books
  • We usually do a moderate amount of walking
