Emily Katz Anhalt

  • Black Family Visual Arts Center, Room 104 22 Lebanon Street Hanover, NH, 03755 United States (map)

Emily Katz Anhalt will present a fascinating new study of three classic works of ancient Greek literature, exposing their enduring relevance. These stories, by Homer, Sophocles, and Euripides, all emphasize the consequences of glorifying violent rage and cultivate instead the capacity for empathy, self-restraint, and rational debate. Emily will be talking about and reading excerpts from her recent book, Enraged: Why Violent Times Need Ancient Greek Myths.
