"Appreciating the Iliad"

Join Latah County scholar Wesley Callihan to hear excerpts and discuss his new translation of Homer’s "Iliad" at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 5, at the Albion Library.

Copies of Callihan’s "The Iliad" will be available for purchase at the event. Callihan grew up on a farm in Idaho and earned a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Idaho in 1983. He has been teaching for more than 35 years, including at Logos School and New Saint Andrews College, in Moscow, as well as Veritas Academy in Lancaster, Pa. He is the founder of Schola Classical Tutorials, where he teaches online classes on the great books and other classical subjects. He is the primary instructor in the Old Western Culture series by Roman Roads Press. The Albion Library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-6:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
