Great Books Council of San Francisco

Poetry Weekend

The Great Books Poetry Weekend is held annually, usually in early November. Each year, the weekend includes three discussions along with a Saturday evening poetry activity that entertains and involves all the participants.

The next Poetry Weekend will take place on November 16-17, 2019 at the Vallombrosa Center in Menlo Park, California.
