NHM Virtual Book Club- Omeros by Derrick Walcott

July 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Announcing NHM Virtual Book Club

Join us as NHM launches our Virtual Book Club facilitated by our Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis. Each month the NHM Book Club will choose a book that is either inspired by the Hellenic legacy or by a Greek American author (and sometimes both!). Then we will gather to discuss the book on Zoom!

Our first book will be Omeros, by the Nobel Prize winning writer Derrick Walcott. This modern epic poem adapts Homer’s Odyssey and Iliad to tell the story of Walcott’s native St. Lucia and the writer’s own life, in a sweeping narrative that jumps St. Lucia to Brookline, Massachusetts, to the great capitals of Europe.

Book Club will be held on the third Thursday of each month. Please register using by clicking here
