Come join us at Whistlestop Bookshop on Wednesday, February 18th at 5:00pm to hear some of the esteemed faculty of Dickinson College read their work! Professor Meghan Reedy and Professor Christopher Francese of the Classics Department and Professor Thomas Reed will all be participating and we would love to see you there!


Chris Francese lives in Carlisle and teaches in the Classical Studies department at Dickinson College. He specializes in Roman literature and culture, and Greek mythography. He is the author of three books, and project director of Dickinson College Commentaries, a series of online multimedia editions of classical texts. He also produces the Latin Poetry Podcast.


Since arriving at Dickinson, Meghan Reedy has expanded her teaching interests to include Roman history alongside Greek and Latin language. Her current research is on emotional display in Roman poetry, particularly in the moody love poems of Propertius.


Thomas Reed’s field is medieval literature, with special emphasis on Chaucer and Marie de France. Other research interests include the Victorian novel and film adaptations of classic English and American texts. He is the author of two books -- "Middle English Debate Poetry and the Aesthetics of Irresolution" and "The Transforming Draught: 'Jekyll and Hyde,' Robert Louis Stevenson, and the Victorian Alcohol Debate" - and he is currently revising an historical novel about Stevenson.
