Homerathon VIII!

Join us on September 28 & 29 for a multifaceted exploration of Love, Betrayal, War, Loss, Pain, Reconciliation, and other experiences that define our common humanity. Is all really fair in love and war? How do we heal and respond to trauma? Be part of the conversation as we engage these Epic issues, beginning with Homer's Iliad and branching through ancient and contemporary art, poetry, fiction, drama, and athletics.


Wednesday, September 28 and 29, 8 am-7pm (both days); Mary Idema Pew Library Multipurpose Room.

  • Discussion of characters and themes, 8 am on the 28th
  • Opening remarks, 9 am on the 28th
