Join us at the National Hellenic Museum’s Virtual Book Club, facilitated by NHM Resident Scholar Dr. Katherine Kelaidis & Manager of Programs & Events Cairo Dye. 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!
NHM Virtual Book Club is free to join and meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7pm CST
On March 18th we will be discussing The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

More about The Penelopiad:
Margaret Atwood, acclaimed author of the The Handmaid’s Tale, retells the story of The Odyssey from the point of view of Odysseus’s long suffering wife Penelope. Focusing on the story of Penelope and the twelve hanged maids, Atwood seeks to answer two enduring questions of The Odyssey: “What led to the hanging of the maids, and what was Penelope really up to?” Marked byAtwood’s astute insight, Penelopiad will forever change how you approach one of humanity’s most enduring tales.
