Come out and listen to Odysseus’s trials and tribulations read by groups of readers from all over Halifax. Beginning at 7pm on Friday, November 24, our first team of readers will begin reading the first Book of The Odyssey. For the next 24 hours, teams will read a book an hour until 7pm on Saturday, November 25. By the end of the event, we will have read all 24 books of The Odyssey over the course of 24 hours! Creativity is encouraged – in past versions of Odyssey Live, some groups have taken turns reading from a podium, while others have added props and costumes, and still others have brought along musical instruments.
There is no admission fee to this event – donations for Halifax Humanities will be gratefully accepted at the door, and teams will be collecting pledges leading up to the event!
If you would like to pledge your support, please visit us here! If you’re supporting a particular Odyssey Live team, be sure to indicate which one in the message box.
Your donations will help Halifax Humanities continue to provide free, non-credit, university-level courses in the humanities to adults living on low incomes in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
