Odysseys: Valzhyna Mort & Raul Palma

Virtual Event

Odysseys: Ithaca Writers on Exile, Wandering, and Searching for Home is a reading series presented by Ithaca City of Asylum and co-sponsored by Global Cornell and Cornell's Migrations initiative.

Homer’s Odyssey recounts the adventures of Odysseus, king of Ithaca, as he seeks to return home after the Trojan War. In four monthly readings, pairs of Ithaca-based writers provide their takes on the theme of odysseys, from the physical to the intellectual to the emotional. 


Valzhyna Mort (poet, translator)

Raul Palma (novelist, short story writer, and assistant professor of writing at Ithaca College)


Kate Blackwood (writer, actor, and Ithaca City of Asylum board member)
