Great Books Council of San Francisco

Long Novel Weekend

Each year in the summer, the San Francisco Council devotes a weekend to discussing a single long work of fiction.

On July 22-23, 2017 we'll spend the weekend discussing The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen.

This year's event will be at a new location for us, UC Berkeley's Clark Kerr Campus in Berkeley, CA.

Two ways to register:

Long novel weekends in the recent past have featured discussions of The Golden Bowl, Middlemarch, The Man Without Qualities, Vol. 1; Moby Dick; David Copperfield; Look Homeward, Angel; The Magic Mountain; Vanity Fair; The Cairo Trilogy; The Sound and the Fury; Sons and Lovers; Anna Karenina; Parade's End; and Crime and Punishment.
