Guilty Conscience Book Group with Liam Hegarty
Thursday, January 3 at 7:00pm. Michael P. Coords Activity Room. No registration required. In this fresh, authoritative version—the first English translation of The Odyssey by a woman—this stirring tale of shipwrecks, monsters, and magic comes alive in an entirely new way. Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, this engrossing translation matches the number of lines in the Greek original, thus striding at Homer’s sprightly pace and singing with a voice that echoes Homer’s music. Books are available in the library now. To receive an email reminder for this event, CLICK HERE.
