    Join Franklin's Department of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies for a reading of "An Odyssey: a Father, a Son, and an Epic", by Daniel Mendelsohn

    The book is a moving account of Mendelsohn’s reading of The Odyssey as he travels in Odysseus' footsteps around the Mediterranean with his ailing father. The author will read from this new book and discuss life writing, forefathers, literature and travel with moderator Rafael Newman, former Professor of Literature at Franklin and poet in his own rights.

    Daniel Mendelsohn is an award-winning author, critic, and translator. His essays, reviews, and articles appear in many publications, most frequently in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and Harpers, for which he contributes a column about culture. He has also been a columnist for the New York Times Book Review and for New York magazine, where he was the weekly book critic. His memoir entitled "An Odyssey: A Father, A Son, and An Epic" is due to appear in September in the U.S..

    Daniel Mendelsohn’s other honors include the PEN Harry Vursell Prize for Prose Style, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Barnes and Noble Discover Prize, the NBCC Citation for Excellence in Book Reviewing, and the George Jean Nathan Prize for Drama Criticism. A member of both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Association, he teaches literature at Bard College.
