Ancient Greeks/Modern Lives: Poetry-Drama-Dialogue

Implementation of a national program series exploring classical literature, to be presented at 100 libraries and performing arts centers in 20 states.

Ancient Greeks/Modern Lives: Poetry-Drama-Dialogue is a major national humanities program traveling to 100 public libraries and art centers across America focusing on inner-city, rural and underserved communities with a mission to inspire people to come together to read, see, and think about classical literature and how it continues to influence and invigorate American cultural life.
