Join the AM Book Club to discuss Pandor’s Jar: Women in Greek Myths by Natalie Haynes. Classicist Haynes provides an entertaining and thought-provoking look at the origins of mythic female characters. Why is Jocasta, mother of Oedipus, at once the cleverest person in the story and yet often unnoticed? How is the vilified Medea like an ancient Beyoncé? Why are we so quick to villainize these women—and so eager to accept the stories we’ve been told? We will meet at McIntyre’s Books, Wednesday, February 15, at 10:15 am. All residents of Fearrington Village and Galloway Ridge are welcome to participate. If you have questions, contact Cathy Clare, firstname.lastname@example.org. Masks please.
