Zoom event

UW Alumni Book Club is currently reading Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr, a story that weaves together three tales — one in historic Constantinople, one in present day Idaho and one in the future with a character who has never been to Earth.  What connects them?  The shared (albeit fictional) classic story of Aethon. Join UW Classics Professor Chris Waldo in a conversation about studying Classics in 2021. How are these stories and cultures still relevant today?  What makes us come back to these tales for generations?

No spoilers! You don't need to have finished Cloud Cuckoo Land to participate in this event.

*This is an event that is open to those who are not yet Alumni as well as those not part of the UWAA Book Club.
