The antics of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece have intrigued and delighted both children and adults for literally thousands of years. Their stories are part of our western culture, inspiring writers from William Shakespeare to Rick Riordan (his Percy Jackson series has given new life to Perseus in the 21st century). Today it is still fun for us to imagine the great Zeus and his brothers and sisters sitting atop Mt. Olympus meting out rewards and punishments to the mortals below. Join Dr. Margery Marcus as she discusses the origins of Greek mythology and colorfully recounts many of its famous tales, while sharing the masterpieces of art based on the great stories.
