Special for LGBTQ Pride Month, the Lesbian Historic Motif Project is doing an all-Sappho month.
We start off with a podcast: Lebian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 10: Sappho of Lesbos - The Woman and the Legend
The blog will feature four books covering various aspects of Sappho's work, reception, and symbolism. (Well, ok, they were the four books I had with "Sappho" in the title that I hadn't covered yet.)
And then the month will conclude with another podcast, this time tracing how different images of Sappho's life and sexuality affected how her poetry was translated and how people were inspired to imitate her, including readings of the poetry.
And just to give you history buffs something else to be excited about, Bella Books is holding a historic fiction e-book sale this weekend! A whole shelf full of historic and historically-inspired fiction (including all three Alpennia books) for just $4.99 each!
