With the holidays behind us and the dust of year-end celebrations settled, the JHU Press, as is the case with many of you faithful blog readers, is hitting the road! That’s right, it’s annual-meeting-mania and we’ll be showcasing new publications and backlist favorites from coast-to-coast for the next week and a half.
Tomorrow kicks off for us with the joint meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and American Philological Association in Seattle, where we’ll debut books ranging from Debra Hamel’s Reading Herodotus to Edward McCrorie’s translation of The Iliad to David F. Elmer’s The Poetics of Consent. Books are buy two get one
for half off during the opening day, from 2-6. Throughout the meeting we’re also offering a 40% discount on Michael Wolfe’s newly published Cut These Words into My Stone: Ancient Greek Epitaphs and on preorders for Reconstructing Ancient Linen Body Armor: Unraveling the Linothrax Mystery, by Gregory S. Aldrete, Scott Bartell, and Alicia Aldrete. We’re hard to miss at booth #414—right across from registration!
