Event description
Join us for an evening with author and journalist Charlotte Higgins and classicist Mary Beard.

About this event

Higgins is Chief culture writer for the Guardian and author of Under Another Sky . Her new book, Greek Myths, is a dazzling depiction of some of the most enduring stories of all time. From goddess of war Athena and banished sorceress Circe, to loyal Penelope and Helen of Troy, this powerful retelling allows female characters to take centre stage.

Mary Beard is a TV presenter, author and professor of classics at Cambridge, whose own work has deeply explored the societies and culture of Roman and Greek civilisations.

Together they will discuss Higgins’s reworking of these powerful stories of unpredictable gods, epic wars, and families turned murderously against each other, which explore the extremes of human experience. They will also be answering your questions at this livestreamed event.
