Donald H. Whitfield, Great Books Vice President for Community and National programs, is delighted to be a guest lecturer at Middle Tennessee State University’s upcoming Spring 2016 Honors Lecture Series. The theme of this year’s series is the Value of Liberal Education. Don is speaking on Monday, March 14, and his topic is Great Books and the Liberal Arts. “I will discuss how the Great Books provide both the content and the skills that together comprise a liberal arts education,” said Whitfield. “The polemical aspect of the talk will be a suggestion of how the greatness of a book might be assessed.” Lectures are free and open to the public.
