Marathon2500 Project: Commemorating the 2,500-year anniversary of The Battle of Marathon. Free phone/web-based lectures, reading groups & more
Marathon2500 is a project of the New York-based nonprofit, Reading Odyssey, Inc.
The mission of Marathon2500 is to make it easy for people around the world to celebrate and learn about the significance of the Battle of Marathon, which happened 2,500 years ago (as of September 2011).
The Reading Odyssey seeks to reignite curiosity and lifelong learning - or - as Aristotle might way, we are helping people to practice the habit of wisdom.
