On Thursday, October 18 at 6:30pm at the Faner Museum auditorium (Room 1526), Walter Metz will give a talk entitled, "I Love Lysi." It is part of the SIU Classics Club, but everyone is invited. It will be of particular interest to film and television students, as the presentation does an intertextual reading of Ancient Greek comedy plays and contemporary American sitcoms.
