For the November 17 meeting at 6:30 PM, Readers Anonymous, the book club for readers in their 20s and 30s, will discuss Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. The group will meet at the Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen, S5718 State Rd 136 & DL, Baraboo.
“Written in Greek by the only Roman emperor who was also a [Stoic] philosopher, without any intention of publication, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. While the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection that has been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers throughout the centuries.” ~ goodreads.com
