Great Books Council of San Francisco

Long Novel Weekend

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

The 2016 Long Novel Weekend has been canceled due to some organizational issues (we're searching for a new volunteer coordinator for it). Look for the Long Novel Weekend to return in the late summer of 2017!


Long novel weekends in the recent past have featured discussions of 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.
