Almost-Annual Beowulf Marathon

Back by popular demand, Honey Moon hosts our third "Almost Annual" Beowulf Marathon on Tuesday, January 23, beginning at 6:00 pm. Get ready to bring forth your inner warrior and do battle with the winter blues as we dive headlong into the granddaddy of all English epics. We'll be reading Seamus Heaney’s award-winning translation, bringing the ancient poem to a modern audience with vivid, visceral force. Participants will take turns reading for 5-10 minute intervals, from Grendel’s scourge of the Mead Hall to Beowulf’s battle with the dragon and the final funeral pyre. The entire event is expected to last 4 – 5 hours; readers and audience members may choose to come and go or stay for the duration. We're in it 'till we win it, folks! The event is free and open to all ages. Anyone interested in participating can sign up to read by calling 360-734-0728 or emailing Hwaet!
