Author George O’Connor appears at WORD on Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 2:00 PM for an afternoon of graphic novels and Greek history with HERMES: TALES OF THE TRICKSTER.
In volume ten of Olympians, George O’Connor delves into the myth of Hermes, the trickster god. From his infancy, when he bewitches animals and bends them to his will (stealing a herd of Apollo’s prize cattle in the bargain), to his adolescence and adulthood when he becomes father to the equally mischievous Pan, Hermes’s story is wildly entertaining as he brings a little bit of chaos to everything he touches or creates.
