Do you remember the Greek and Roman myths you read as a child? Join Philip Freeman of the Classics department at Luther College to discuss gods, goddesses, and heroes from Aeneas to Zeus from an adult point-of-view with all the violence and sensuality of the original tales. Learn about the creation of the world, the labors of Hercules, the Trojan War, the founding of Rome, and much more. Recommended for high school age and above.


Beginning Friday October 1, anyone interested in participating in the discussion may stop by Decorah Public Library to register and pick up a free copy of the book (there will be 20 available on a first come, first serve basis). The discussion will take place in Decorah Public Library’s 2nd floor Mezzanine Gallery Wednesday November 3 at 7 pm.


Discussion facilitator Dr. Philip Freeman is the Qualley Chair of Classical Languages at Luther College. He holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University and has been teaching undergraduates for over fifteen years. He loves reading and talking about interesting books from Homer to Harry Potter.
