Event Details

Matt Davis, Latin Teacher, Miramonte High School

On this bimillennial anniversary of the death of the first Roman emperor, Augustus, we peer into the perennial popularity of a seemingly long-dead language. Davis heads the very popular (over 150 students) Latin program at Miramonte High School in Orinda, and he will share with us his passion for the classics that keeps his 21st-century students tapping out declensions of ancient verbs on their iPads. Who was Augustus? Was August named after him? Or vice versa? And why Latin? Why, indeed! Carpe diem and come hear why.
