Thursday, April 21st @ 8pm in Main Hall Lobby
Please come celebrate the 2765th Birthday of Rome with the Randolph College Classics Department at our 3rd Annual marathon reading! This year we will be reading the entire Satyricon aloud, eating cake, and playing a variety of Roman games (suitable for Latinists and non-Latinists alike).
The Satyricon, a novel by Gaius Petronius, follows the journey of Encolpius, a former gladiator, through a debaucherous world of sex and parties during the reign of Nero.
Stop by and read a few pages, listen to the exploits of Encolpius, and share some cake in honor of our beloved Roma! We will be there from 8pm until we’re done reading.
