Reading Envy 185: Loyal Swineherd (The Odyssey Readalong)

Jeff, Nadine, Robin, Nikki, Lindy, and Elizabeth joined me on a Saturday afternoon to discuss the most recent Reading Envy Readalong - The Odyssey by Homer, most of us reading the translation by Emily Wilson, some reading the translation by Wilson as narrated by Claire Danes. We reflected on favorite moments, memorable characters, and our own experiences with this (literally) epic work. Did you readalong or have more to share? Please leave a comment!
