Reading Odyssey's Marathon2500 Lecture

7:17 PM

The Reading Odyssey is a great project in public education.  They sponsor reading groups with noted scholars, lecture series accessible live, podcasts and the unique SLOW ART DAY at a museum near you. Last year they did a nice series of lectures on Darwin and this year the topic has been the Battle of Marathon.
"The Reading Odyssey (, a non-profit, aims to reignite curiosity and lifelong learning - or - as Aristotle might way, we are helping people to practice the habit of wisdom.  We run phone, web and live events such as reading groups, lectures, conferences and the global arts celebration, Slow Art Day."
