As advocates of literacy and critical thinking, we work toward a civil and just society, advancing the ultimate promise of democracy – participation for all.

We encourage you to visit the Connections section of our website on a regular basis. It includes stories, tips, and ideas focusing on the power of lifelong learning, reading and teaching, as well as happenings in the world of Great Books.

We are an independent, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) educational organization and as such, we appreciate the support of individuals, corporations, and other organizations that believe in our mission – to advance social and civic engagement and help people of all ages think critically about their own lives and the world we share.
