Join us for our “Read and Look” program in the museum galleries on select Saturdays. We will take over a corner of the museum to read the book Greece! Rome! Monsters! by John Harris, then find related artifacts and art on display. This tour is great for our younger visitors, ages 4–8. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

About the story: Everybody’s heard of a centaur, but not everyone has seen a blue centaur dressed to head out to a disco! He’s one of the updated mythological creatures who populate Greece! Rome! Monsters! This book presents twenty creepy creatures—from harpies to Medusa herself to the fire-breathing Chimera—in jazzy retellings by John Harris, with eye-popping illustrations by Southern California illustrator Calef Brown. Together, the words and pictures provide children (and grownups!) with close encounters of the mythological kind.

This event is free and open to all visitors. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessing this event, please visit our accessibility page at or contact the education office by calling (734) 647-4167. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the university to arrange.
