I would like to add the idea that after the first book is read. That we do the Love poems of Sappio.Just to remind everyone who that is.She was the Greek Lesbian poet that wrote about love between women.

Has to be. I heard that the word lesbian was because she lived on the island of lesbos...

We JUST discussed this today in a class of mine. Of course the word "lesbos" made half of the class snicker, the remaining half were sleeping. I just smiled.

At one point, I saw this stand-up comic on Comedy Central, and he was like, "My mom's from Greece. Specifically, Lesbos . . . I know, I know, really funny . . . but when I was a kid I would go up to my mom and ask, "Mom, what are people from Germany called?"
"Germans."
"What are people from Italy called?"
"Italians."
"What are people from Greece called?"
"Greeks."
"What are people from Lesbos called?"
"Lesb . . . GREEKS!"
