we are the philosophy guild …

We are kids who love reading good stories and talking about them together.  We meet after we've read, and bring our questions to the table.

We celebrate the reading with an activity and a treat.

We usually select classical literature, because we like asking timeless questions.  Our discussions are seminar-style, where an adult tutor facilitates (not dominates) the conversation and encourages Socratic dialogue.
