Reading Odyssey Annual Report – 2011

We have created our first annual report in order to keep our growing community apprised of where we’ve been and where we are going.

You can download or read it here:

The report details a number of things. We had a great year in 2011 – and reached thousands of adults around the world with our programs. 

We have great plans in store for the future and in the report we describe how we are testing a new marketing strategy to reach adults: we are providing a free platform for *high schools* to run reading groups with the *parents* of their students, and also, for *libraries* to run groups with patrons.

As for help – we need all the help we can get to ignite more curiosity and lifelong learning.  

Would you like to help us?

If so, you can assist in any of the following ways.

– Get a Reading Odyssey test reading group going at a school or library near you

– Help us launch more books (we need more scholars in science and literature to lend a hand)
– Donate $2.50 or $25.00?

It’s been about 2,500 years since the first great books began to appear and you can make a tax-deductible contribution in an amount to commemorate that. You will fund our global volunteer efforts to help more adults read important, challenging books:

You can also join one of our virtual reading groups this year – we are reading Homer’s Odyssey in May (http://odyssey2012.eventbrite.com) and Herodotus starting in September (http://herodotus2012.eventbrite.com). We also have a question and answer session on Iliad with Professor Paul Cartledge Monday, April 2 at 7pm New York time. Please join us for that –http://iliad2012qa.eventbrite.com

If you have any questions or want to find out more about how to help, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks,

Phil Terry
