Moscow Classics

LESS THAN 20% OF THE POPULATION CAN AFFORD HEART SURGERY. FOR 80% OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION, IF THEY EVER REQUIRE A HEART OPERATION, THEY’RE GOING TO DIE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. HEALTHCARE HAS TO BE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET WITH DIGNITY.
— Dr. Devi Shetty, Founder, Narayana Health System

"Moscow Classics: Go Somewhere Beautiful" tells the story of a retiring Classics professor Louis Perraud in Moscow, Idaho. It's a tale of how a northeastern, cosmopolitan, non-driving, opera-loving, single, Rome-educated scholar not only survived for 27 years in the arid terrain of the rural West, but also helped run a thriving program in classical languages and literatures. He is the reason why Idaho farm kids want to learn Latin and Greek.
