In Memory of Bill Meiers
We are very sad to learn of the recent and sudden death of Bill Meiers, long-time participant in and former president of the Philadelphia Great Books Council. Many of us at the Foundation got to know Bill during his many visits to Great Books Chicago. He was an eloquent spokesman for our discussion programs and appears in a short GBF video produced several years ago. We extend our sympathy to Bill’s family and especially to his sister Nancy who has expressed interest in starting a Great Books group at her local library in Virginia as a living memorial to her brother.
The mission of the Great Books Foundation is to advance the critical, reflective thinking and social and civic engagement of readers of all ages through Shared Inquiry™ discussion of works and ideas of enduring value.
