Our Monthly Book Club
Lupercal runs a monthly virtual book club in which we read a contemporary book by a woman author and discuss its relation to mythology, herstory, our field of Latin studies, and our own lives. We have been honored to have the author herself attend a Q&A after our Latin discussion, and have welcomed authors such as Mary Beard, Nina MacLaughlin, and Helen Morales to our group!
While the discussion takes place mostly in Latin, and the Q&A in the language the text was originally written in, we invite participants of all Latin levels, even complete beginners, to attend. We have creative prompts to allow members of different Latin levels to access the conversation, and you are always welcome to observe as a silent participant if you feel more comfortable that way.
Below are some of the books we have read as a group. To recommend a future book club book, please fill out our brief form here!
