As a follow-up to the Sappho poetry event, we will have a toga party. Yes, this is a costume party. Your costume can be very simple and cheap - just wrap a sheet around yourself! - You can change at my apartment.
If you want to do anything more elaborate, go ahead!
(Actually Greek women wore a "peplos" - but we won't be fussy. You can even be a foreign guest if you would rather dress Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Ethiopian, or from somewhere else in the ancient world.)
We can have more poetry reading. If you like, bring your favorite poem by Sappho, or any other ancient author. But you don't have to read a poem if you don't want to.
Yes, bring potluck food and drink to share - especially Greek or Mediterranean food!
