2018 Paideia summer reading book. Wilson's new book—the first English translation of "The Odyssey" by a woman—has given us a reason to return to a favorite text. The main theme of "The Odyssey" is a homecoming theme: Odysseus and the other Greek heroes of the Trojan War are returning to homes that are very different from the ones they left. Their story includes many incredible adventures, while also prompting us to think about journeys and how we welcome the stranger at our door. There is a $5.00 shipping cost to mail this book, via book rate, within the US.
