O Tempora! O Mores!

That's right, school is back in session.

Last weekend's Prairie Home Companion broadcast (honoring education) featured Emeritus Professor Robert Sonkowsky (University of Minnesota, Classics) performing a dramatic reading from Cicero's Oration Against Cataline (In Catalinam I), with a witty English translation by Garrison Keillor. In this show, Keillor also reminisces about his former University of Minnesota Latin Professor, Margaret Forbes.

You can hear more of Robert Sonkowsky's readings at the Society for the Oral Reading of Greek and Latin Literature (SORGLL) site, where you'll also find readings by other highly respected classicists.
