Attendees who signed up for the event were given excerpts from the book so they had a contextual understanding of the book and to help facilitate discussion.

Following a discussion with members of the faculty, Halperin stayed to answer questions from students through which Halperin addressed a variety of topics, including Ancient Greek writers’ place in camp culture and how one can publish a book.
