For our 2022 in-depth reading Folio is pleased to present Les Misérables, a book many people aspire to read but never do. Why do we think you should read Les Misérables? Two words - Victor Hugo. And of course there’s plenty more. Les Miserables is a timeless story filled with philosophical ideas and themes. With challenging history lessons throughout, the novel remains relevant to our hyper partisan political climate today.

If you love language, join us and be swept away by Hugo’s glorious prose as we delve into this profound story about the extraordinary power of a single act of kindness.

Our discussion over the next 10 weeks will be based on the technique of Shared Inquiry developed by the Great Books Foundation. Click "See All" below to view the full schedule.
