As part of the "Ancient Greek and Modern Lives" series, devoted students of Greek myth and those looking to understand the role these long-standing tales have played on art and culture are invited to join The City Library in a 4-session reading group which focuses on some of the stories that helped shape our understanding of the world—whether we are aware of it or not. Reading materials include Aeschylus’ “Agamemnon”, Sophocles’ “Ajax”, Euripides’ “Herkles”, and the “Odyssey: The Return of the Hero” by Homer. Participants will meet every Thursday, between April 11th to May 2nd, to discuss the reading.
Books for the series will be provided, free of charge. Discussions will be lead by Prof. Svendsen. Participation is limited to 25 and requires pre-registration. To register, visit the Welcome Desk at the Main Library, or call 801-524-8200.
