Guest lecturers/panelists: Invited guest Follow The River author James Alexander Thom cannot be with us, but author Sarah E. Morin and anthropologist/artist/writer Alys Caviness-Gober will do their best to represent him as they facilitate discussion of Follow The River. Dr. Paul Morin-Wilson, PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies, Specialist in Ancient Languages will discuss the various physical and psychological journeys of Odysseus, including the journey of a warrior returning to civilian life.
