25th Annual Homerathon a grand success!

On Friday May 10, 2019 we celebrated the 25th Homerathon with a reading of Iliad 3 in ancient Greek, Italian, and English.  Dean Pat Okker as well as Chancellor Cartwright joined the festivities, and we are also grateful to Olivia Love taking part and even putting the Homerathon on the air:
