The provocative series, “Book Discussions through the Decades,” continues with The Private Life of Helen of Troy (1926) by John Erskine on Monday, March 3rd at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library. The novel takes place after the events in the Iliad, with Menelaus bringing Helen back to Sparta after sparing her life at the behest of Agamemnon.
