Once again, in the spirit of the year-end retrospectives so popular this time of year, I offer up a list of our past year's offerings:

January 25th: "The Second Sex," by Simone de Beauvoir
February 22nd: "An Interest in Life," by Grace Paley
March 28th: Selected Poems by Wislawa Szymborska
April 25th: "Discipline and Punish," by Michel Foucault
May 23rd: "Interpreter of Maladies," by Jhumpa Lahiri
June 27th: "The Prince," by Machiavelli
July 25th: "The Meno," by Plato
August 22nd: "Life of Nicias," by Plutarch
September 26th: "To Perpetual Peace," by Kant
October 24th: "The Chilean Earthquake," by Heinrich von Kleist

Here's looking forward to another year of personal growth in 2017, aided and abetted by the mysterious and miraculous power of talking and listening to others.
