Reading and Discussion Style Programs
Exploring Ideas through Books, Poetry, and More
VHC's reading and discussion programs are built on the foundation of reading literature and discussing it with your neighbors, coworkers, and even family members, usually through a scholar-led discussion. It is a way to explore difficult issues, talk about current events, and make it through challenging times.
