The Philosophy Guild is a free book club for kids who love reading great stories and talking about them together. Students come prepared having already read the book. They select literature—usually classical—that will help them ask timeless questions. Parents submit recommendations and the final list is voted upon.
The ongoing discussions are seminar-style, where an adult tutor facilitates (not dominates) the conversation and encourages Socratic dialogue. Students are required to bring a copy of the reading. Each seminar includes a treat or snack and an activity inspired by the book. Visit their website for age levels, readings, and schedules.
