VERGIL’S VOICE:
A STUDY GROUP FOR TEENS
WHO LOVE READING LATIN LITERATURE

Appreciation of Vergil’s poetry is a Latin learner’s task of a lifetime. This Latin poet, who is the focus of the AP Latin examination in 2012, has been used in schools since Roman days. Vergil continues to be a model and guide for skillful speech and literary art up until this day.

Each weekend, students will work to read and appreciate the art of Vergil’s Aeneid. Each weekend meeting will address selections from a book of the Aeneid. Meetings are scheduled to begin in September 2011, and to last through late April 2012 in time to have studied each book of the poem before the AP examination in May 2012.

WHEN: Saturday mornings
TIME: 10 am.-12 noon @ Balch/Ashburn and exception of a special Introduction session for Ashburn at 1 pm. on Saturday 27 August 2011.)
