A Driving Force Behind Keeping the Classics Relevant

This is an article about Amy Thomas Elder, who runs the Odyssey Project for the Illinois Humanities Council. This program provides college level classes that focus on the humanities for free to low-income people.
When I heard about the Odyssey Project, I wanted to write a freelance article about it. I called and left a message, and I got a call back from Amy. She said “We need volunteers, are you in or out?” Not a lot of fooling around. So, I said “I’m in” and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
I learned a lot and hope that I helped others do the same.
