Roosevelt Montás arrived in the US as a teenage immigrant from the Dominican Republic, and now teaches at Columbia University, where, in 2000, he won the Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching by a Graduate Student.
His book Rescuing Socrates makes the case for the personal value of great literature, and argues for the continued teaching of Great Books, Classics and Philosophy perhaps especially for those to whom they may seem to have little immediate relevance.
Join hosts Pranav Sood and Neil Atkinson – trustees of The Reader and ardent Classics fans – live in the Mansion House as they talk to Roosevelt who will be joining from New York via Zoom.
