The American Philological Association is pleased to present this special event sponsored by the Gatekeeper to Gateway Campaign for Classics at the upcoming APA Annual Meeting
Thursday, January 5, 2012
Grand Ballroom H (fifth floor), Philadelphia Marriott Hotel
In his new project, Odysseys: Adventures in Reading the Greeks, Daniel Mendelsohn—classical scholar, author of the international bestseller The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million, translator of Cavafy, and prolific contributor on classical themes to The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and other influential publications—adapts his trademarked blending of ancient texts and travel narrative to the classics, weaving a story that combines reflections on Greek texts with a larger story of a father-son journey to the sites of Greek culture through the Mediterranean and beyond. Mr. Mendelsohn will read passages from his work-in-progress that illuminate the transmissions that take place both as new generations encounter the great works of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations and as a father and son share that encounter.
