Event Details

Winter 2010 Homer's Odyssey - Free phone-based reading group
Tuesdays January 19, February 9, March 9 at 8pm ET
Moderator: Pat Wictor 

In the winter of 2010, we'll run another phone-based Homer reading group for those who would like the Reading Odyssey reading experience of this great epic. Special thanks to Reading Odyssey sponsors Citrix Online and their HiDefConferencing division.

Moderated by the wonderful Pat Wictor, the reading group will meet Tuesdays Jan 19, Feb 9 and March 9 at 8pm ET, 5pm Pacific via phone. The conference call number will be supplied to all who register.

Pat will use the custom Reading Odyssey method to make it a good experience and help first-time readers engage the text.

Reading Odyssey Process

- readers will read a section of the Odyssey each month assigned by Pat with reading questions
- then get on the phone to discuss the reading (and the reading questions assigned by Pat)
- each phone call is recorded and the .mp3 is made available to the readers who missed it
- Pat is also available via e-mail during the month to answer questions - and members are encouraged to use the group e-mail listserv and blog to discuss the reading
