The International Readers of Homer is a literary arts organization dedicated to great poetry

read aloud by any person who wishes to do so.  Our audience-participation readings of the Iliad and the Odyssey bring the classics alive as we all share the joy and power of hearing and performing epic poetry.

The International Readers of Homer, like many event production companies, was deeply impacted in our programming by the pandemic.

We are thrilled to announce 
our return with a public reading of Caroline Alexander's translation of Homer's

Iliad in the Spring of 2023 at the glorious Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

Look for updates here soon.

The ongoing worldwide community Homer readings [are] among the most moving — shall I say necessary? — of cultural experiences I’ve witnessed. Ever.

I've never had the experience

of living inside a poem like that before...
