Latin TeaAuthor of the week:  Ovid


Latin students of every level are invited to join Professor Michael Nerdahl for a weekly reading of Latin, with servings of tea and cookies. Various short excerpts will be chosen ranging from epic poems of antiquity to Medieval satirical comedy. No preparation is expected nor required, readings will be distributed upon arrival. The goal is simply to enjoy snacks and warm drink, to meet fellow Latin lovers, to suffer Michael's endearingly bad jokes, to translate whatever Latin we can, and to discuss its relative merits or lack thereof.
