Please join us for a community-based reading group of a classic Greek play, Euripides’ Alcestis, in order to show how these texts can be used to have conversations about pressing societal issues. With a story at the center of discussion, community members can begin to tackle questions like: What responsibilities do we have toward one another? How do we determine right and wrong? We will demonstrate the method of implementing reading groups across ages and backgrounds in community settings by bringing together Carolina community and the Seymour Center.

A Carolina Engagement Week Event
Carolina Engagement Week is your chance to explore the impact of community-driven partnerships powered by state and local community leaders and Carolina researchers. By attending one or more sessions, you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of the methods and collaborative approaches that are working effectively throughout different parts of North Carolina. You can also identify new opportunities to engage in community initiatives around the state designed to create social and economic impact.
