Appreciate Europe’s second oldest literary work through lectures, reading and class discussions. Why did so many of the Greek victors of Troy run into trouble with the gods on their way back home? What happened to Helen, whose abduction started the war? Are the gods responsible for evil? Did Homer compose both the Iliad and the Odyssey? How could illiterate bards compose thousands of lines of poetry without writing? What is the meaning of all those fairy tales in the Odyssey? Murder, a wife’s faithfulness, a son’s search for his father, a husband’s 20 year separation from his wife, ancient fairy tales in the Odyssey–all these and more are subjects of discussion. Please read Homer’s Odyssey (Penguin translation by Robert Fagels). For discounted new or used copies, contact Garrett Polman

A $30 equipment rental fee is payable to the instructor on the first day of class. This class is limited to 10 people so register early.
Imagine snowshoeing through the forest as the setting winter sun transitions to evening. The forest is still and quiet as the stars slowly appear in the night sky and darkness envelopes us like a cozy blanket. The crisp white snow lightens our surroundings and our headlamps make each snowflake glisten like tiny little diamonds. This, above all, is the most magical time to be on the trails. Meet locations will vary each week; you will be contacted with the location. A $50 equipment rental fee is payable to the instructor on the first day of class. This class is limited to 10 so register early.
NOTE: Snowshoeing experience required.
