‘Daniel Mendelsohn with Rebecca Mead: Fathers, Heroes, Sons’
On November 15, Daniel Mendelsohn—a regular contributor to the Review and a professor at Bard College—will discuss his recently published book An Odyssey: A Father, a Son, and an Epic as part of the LIVE from the NYPL series, co-presented with the Onassis Cultural Center New York.
In his review of the book, which centers on an Odyssey seminar that Mendelsohn teaches to a class of college students and his auditing father, Peter Green writes, “the paternally augmented seminar, and the Odyssey-related Mediterranean cruise that father and son took shortly after it, turned out to be an unexpected, and revealing, success. In particular, they stimulated exploration, via Homer, of the timeless elements of family relationships down through the generations.”
