New book discussion starts. Come read Homer's Iliad with us!
Image of item Meetings will be on eight alternate Wednesdays starting in January (Jan 11, Jan 25, Feb 8, Feb 22, Mar 8, Mar 22, Apr 12 and Apr 26). Specific readings will be provided as the group progresses.

For the first meeting, please read book 1, chapter 1 from the English translation by Richmond Lattimore. Library copies will be available, as well as very reasonably priced used copies at Toad Hall.

Greek gods and mortals in western literature's oldest tale - the story of the aftermath of the abduction of Helen and the consequent Greek siege of Troy.

All are welcome.
