Homer's Guide to Being Alive Now
Homer, the Homer, the original Homer...not Homer Simpson!
Meet Pranav Sood, VP of Small Business at UK technology company, GoCardless and a trustee of The Reader since 2019. Pranav is a lover of Test cricket and a lapsed Classicist.
Neil Atkinson is CEO of award-winning multimedia group, The Anfield Wrap, and co-writer of British sci-fi film Native (2016). Neil joined Pranav on The Reader's Board of Trustees earlier this year.
Both self-confessed Homer fans, they invite you to join them as they read favourite bits from the Greek poet’s epic ‘The Odyssey’. Hosted by The Reader’s founder, Jane Davis, Pranav and Neil will consider what this tale of Odysseus’ heroic struggle to return home after the Trojan war and the wider writings of Homer can teach us about modern life.
Whether you’re new to Homer or not, this event is perfect for anyone who has ever wondered what one of the most influential writers of all time has to offer us now.
