05/25/2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Poetry
Reading

The Odyssey, with its hero sailing through islands peopled with strange, alien beings, was, in many ways, the first science fiction saga. And like good science fiction, it held a mirror up to our reality, and asked questions about what it meant to be human, and what it means to be a good person within a given society. And it did so in verse.
