For our inaugural Classics Marathon, over a hundred students and faculty gathered over almost 12 hours to hear a recitation of Homer's Odyssey. Professor Roberts kicked off the event around 8:30 a.m. with a rousing reading of the proem in Greek. An uninterrupted succession of students and faculty followed throughout the day, with reading wrapping up around 7 p.m. Thank you to all who made the day such a rousing success!
