A marathon read-aloud of the entire "Odyssey" will take place on Tuesday, April 9, at 9 a.m. in the ground-floor lobby of Eaton Humanities (CU Boulder Campus). This takes around 12 hours to read, so reading will continue until the book is finished. Please join us in completing this team endeavor by signing up for a 10-minute read-aloud slot. A sign-up sheet is posted outside the Classics Department office (HUMN 340), or you can e-mail Nick Romeo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Beth Dusinberre (email@example.com) with your preferences and they will try to fit you in at the time you wish. Snacks will be provided at 3 and 6 p.m.
There will be copies of Fagles' translation for use, but if you prefer a different translation feel free to offer this (all readings in English please).
The event is co-sponsored by the Classics Department, the Classics Club, the Center for Western Civilization and the Center for Humanities and the Arts. Anyone and everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. No prior knowledge of Greek, the "Odyssey" or pronunciation of names is necessary.
