Wilson, Victor Davis Hanson and Rebecca Newberger Goldstein. Book examples read include "The Closing of the Muslim Mind" by Robert Riley, "The Servile Mind: How Democracy Erodes the Moral Life" by Kenneth Minogue and "Science and Providence" by John Polkinghorne. Books are chosen by members and range from popular to serious. Members read only a chapter or two at a time, meet for a synopsis and discussion which includes light beverages and snacks.
