Daniel Mendelsohn - An Odyssey: A Father, a Son, and an Epic

Upcoming Event
Monday, September 18, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Mendelsohn, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for The Lost, is a classicist and a regular contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books. His father, Jay, a retired research scientist, decided at age eighty-one that he wanted to experience something of a world he’d missed and enrolled in Mendelsohn’s Bard College course on Homer. He proved a demanding student. Father and son challenged each other in the classroom and then, enacting their own odyssey, continued their mutual tutelage on a trip together through the Mediterranean, playing out in real life the literary themes of discovery, homecoming, and recognition. Mendelsohn’s moving memoir is a tribute to literature’s power to bridge differences of all kinds.
