Implementation of a series of reading and performance discussion programs in seven states and a website about how the themes of classical Greek and Roman drama continue to resonate today across a variety of racial and ethnic subcultures.

Page and Stage: Theater, Tradition and Culture in America is an in-depth partnership between the library and the theater. This project will place live theatrical events, reading groups and lectures in public libraries to inspire people to come together and read, see, and think about classical literature and how it continues to influence and invigorate American cultural life. The Aquila Theater Company, the Urban Libraries Council (ULC), the American Philological Association (APA) and the Center for Ancient Studies at New York University will develop and guide this program that will forge a unique partnership between 16 public libraries with their local performing arts centers. The program will take place from March 2009 to May 2010 and will be hosted by Brooklyn, Memphis, Newark, Topeka, Lawrence, Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, Fort Lauderdale, Nashville, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Newcastle, NY, Queens, NY, San Diego, White Plains, NY and Newport News, VA.
