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 in November 2017 at the Vallombrosa Center in Menlo Park, California.

If you're interested in checking out a list of the poems that we've discussed in past years during Poetry Weekend and at the Asilomar Weekend, you can find the list here (chronological order) or here (by poet).
