New Dorp Library
Bank of America is the lead partner of The New York Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, which is also generously funded by HBO; New York Yankees Foundation; The Rona Jaffe Foundation; Target; Mary McConnell Bailey; Alyce W.

From their protected perch on Mount Olympus, the Gods of ancient Greece wrap their magic and subterfuge around the humans they choose to meddle with. Their manipulations influence the futures of the mortals who live far below them in a world bound by the realities of life and death. The important question of whether our choices can alter our fate is the eternal riddle of these fascinating and timeless myths. Presented by the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company. For ages 4 and older.
