The Virtues of Reading

Karen Swallow Prior | April 4, 2017

Event: 2017 TGC National Conference (Workshops)


Reading great books can cultivate virtue in two ways: by modeling virtue, and by offering readers a way to practice virtues imaginatively through the act of reading. This talk will highlight some of the virtues embodied in classical literary works and demonstrate reading skills that cultivate both virtue and also delight in the reader.
