When Daniel Mendelsohn’s father, Jay, enrolled in his son's undergraduate Odyssey seminar at Bard College, it set the two men on a journey toward mutual understanding that was at times as treacherous as the straits of Scilla. Mendelsohn tells the tale in An Odyssey: A Father, a Son, and an Epic. Arguing over Homer’s classic in the classroom and then recreating Odysseus’s voyages in an unforgettable Mediterranean journey, the scientist father attempts to appreciate the path of his writer/classicist son, while the son gradually uncovers long-buried secrets that explain his difficult parent. Mendelsohn, an award-winning memoirist and critic and frequent contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books, will speak with New Yorker staff writer Rebecca Mead.

Co-presented with the Onassis Cultural Center New York.
