Description: Tales of Dionysus is the first English verse translation of one of the most extraordinary poems of the Greek literary tradition: the Dionysiaca of Nonnus of Panopolis. This title brings together forty-two translators from a wide range of backgrounds, with different experiences and different potential relationships to the text of Nonnus’ poem. Now, the authors are bringing their varied perspectives on this classic epic poem to a live audience. November 17, 7 p.m., at the Raven, 7 of the translators who worked on Tales of Dionysus will read from and discuss their approaches to the text, with time for an audience Q&A at the end. Presenters include Stanley Lombardo, William Levitan, Joseph Harrington, John Gronbeck-Tedesco, Catherine Anderson, Jonathan Mayhew, and Cyrus Console-Şoican. Attendance at in-person Raven events requires a mask and vaccination against COVID-19. Thank you!

Over the last 18 years, Casey Donahew has risen from a favorite on the local Texas music scene, racking up 21 #1 singles, to a nationally hot touring act who consistently sells out venues all across the country. Donahew has released eight independent albums to critical and commercial acclaim. Donahew’s STANDOFF, quickly topped the iTunes Country Chart at #1, upon its release, and his follow-up album ALL NIGHT PARTY, out on August 19, 2016, immediately rocketed to #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, #13 on the Top Album Sales Chart and Top Current Album Sales Chart and #40 on the Billboard 200 Chart. The project also took the #2 spot on the Internet Albums Chart and landed at #3 on the Independent Albums Chart. His 15th anniversary record titled 15 YEARS, THE WILD RIDE, a collection of Donahew’s most popular songs, and the ones that droves of fans sing night after night at his live concerts, was inspired by and became a gift for those fans who remain loyal in Donahew’s standing-room-only audiences. His current album ONE LIGHT TOWN, garnered Donahew his latest #1 single, “Let’s Make A Love Song, which was the #1 most played independent song on country radio for 2019 and had BILLBOARD spouting upon its release “…’Let’s Make A Love Song’ has radio written all over it”.
