Bailey Cove Classics: Iliad

Location: Bailey Cove Branch Library
Date: Tuesday, August 16, 2005 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

So great is the impact of ancient Greek literature on Western culture that even people who have never read Homer's Iliad or The Odyssey know a lot about them. The Trojan Horse, Achilles' heel, the Sirens' call, Scylla and Charybdis--all have entered popular mythology, becoming metaphors for the less heroic situations we face in our own lives.

Bailey Cove Classics - Gulliver's Travels

Location: Bailey Cove Branch Library
Date: Monday, January 5, 2009 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

The fantastic voyages of Lemuel Gulliver to four marvelous realms: Lilliput, where the people are six inches tall; Brobdingnag, a land inhabited by giants; Laputa, a wondrous flying island; and a country where the Houyhnhnms, a race of intelligent horses, are served by savage humanoid creatures called Yahoos. A brilliant combination of adventure, humor, and philosophy.
