Online Summer Reading Groups
SASA is running a series of FREE weekly online Summer Reading Groups of ancient texts-in-translation for high school and college students, and open to all others as well! Each group is led by a SASA Educational Ambassador, a PhD student specializing in that particular area of study. Groups are designed as informal discussion sessions, in which participants discuss the themes and ideas found in the weekly readings, as guided by the Group Leader.
Digital format readings will be supplied by the Educational Ambassador several days in advance of each meeting, to allow participants to prepare for discussion during the session. Weekly meetings for the Reading Group will be held on Zoom, at the day and time specified for each Event listed below.
Summer groups are scheduled to begin the week of Sunday, June 14th and run for 8 weeks.
Please contact email@example.com with any questions or suggestions.
If you would like to volunteer as a future Group Leader, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
