About This Book Club

Each month, a Joseph Campbell Scholar will guide you through new frameworks for understanding humanity. Explore mythology, psychology, and the fundamental stories we share as a species. Connect to ancient wisdom through classic and contemporary narratives with the Myth and Meaning book club.

Joseph Campbell was a prolific American author and professor whose explorations of mythology and religion reframed the way the literary world views stories. His foundation exists to preserve, protect, and perpetuate his work.

Literati membership is $20 a month.

Discover New Books

Each month, we'll pick a new book to read together that will transport and transform you.
