Patio Q&A on “Caught Between Scylla and Charybdis”
Unlike Odysseus, you’ve got too many good choices this evening! Join us for an hour of good drink and conversation – of mythological proportions! Dr. Louis Markos and Dr. Christopher Perrin invite you to join the conversation about Louis’s next new book from Classical Academic Press, Myth Made Fact. Bring your questions, your curiosity and your favorite beverage as we explore Christ as the nexus point of history, and archetypes of all kinds (modern and ancient).

He is a Professor of English and Scholar in Residence at Houston Baptist University, where he teaches courses on British Romantic and Victorian Poetry and Prose, the Classics, C. S. Lewis and J. R.
