About this Event

Celebrate Women’s History Month with a trip 2,500 years back in time to archaic Greece and the Island of Lesbos. Discover how Sappho--the first woman in the Western literary tradition--established a lyric songwriting tradition that continues to influence music and literature today. Enjoy performances of Sappho’s work by actors and musicians, with fascinating historical context provided by academic experts and Sappho’s most recent translator, sponsored by the Regis University Women's and Gender Studies program.

How did one woman establish the tradition we hear in the Mariah Careys and Lady Gagas of today? Who was Sappho, and why have her love poems and religious odes survived for millennia?
