Philosophy Guild

A book discussion group just for kids

and open to the public

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.

Cost

Philosophy Guild is $45 for the entire winter series.  This cost is a book fee, so you can have your own copies to keep. The  fee can be waived if you obtain your own copies of the readings.  So if you gather the books on your own, the seminars are FREE.
