Megan Wells tells Helen’s Troy
Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 3:00 p.m.
Helen of Troy is forever remembered in poetry as the face that launched a thousand ships. What must it have been like to live behind a face like that? After intense research into the history, literature, and mythology of the legendary Trojan War, Megan Wells crafted an epic that illuminates the complex choices of a Spartan woman of power. Resonant to our modern age, politics over territory bend circumstances to incite mighty conflicts. (Appropriate for adults and children 12 and older.)
