EUROPEAN FESTIVAL OF LATIN AND GREEK
On 24 March 2017 at 10 a.m. Paris time take part in the largest mass reading of The Odyssey ever organized !
For its 11th year, the European Festival of Latin and Greek is launching an unprecedented challenge : a Europe-wide public reading of The Odyssey which will gather together, in France and abroad, hundreds of people to read Homer’s Odyssey at the same time.
Are you a teacher ? A student ? A bookseller ? A librarian ? A theatre-goer ? Or simply convinced of the necessity to nurture the Humanities ?
So organize a group of readers and choose a public space to enable people to hear a complete book from The Odyssey in the language of your choosing ; about 20 pages, an hour-long reading and … long live culture !
To participate, you just have to send to firstname.lastname@example.org the following information :
1) Name and activity of the person who organizes the group of readers
2) Book of the Odyssey you want to read
3) Name of the city
4) Reading venue (if possible in a public place)
5) Number of readers
6) Structure organizing the reading (university, school, association …)
7) Language(s) chosen for your reading
