Ralph Hardy, Argos "Epilogue"

Clip | 4m 13s

Author Ralph Hardy talks about how he was inspired to write a book based on a character who appears for only 17 lines in the source material – Homer's Odyssey. “Really, it's a 'boy & his dog' story.” “I try to faithfully retell The Odyssey & give kind of an entry for young readers who haven't read The Odyssey yet & might read it in 9th grade, where it's required reading in NC.”
