As noted in a previous post, the Attleboro Land Trust is participating in the annual Big Read program of the Attleboro Public Library. This year, the entire community is reading the book Circe, a story about Greek gods and goddesses by Madeline Miller.
If you are visiting the Phil and Ginny Leach Wildlife Sanctuary to do the Virtual Mythology Scavenger Hunt, be sure to visit Big Rock before you leave. This glacial boulder serves as a reminder of Sisyphus, a character from Greek mythology not mentioned in the book. Sisyphus was a dishonest and greedy king who was punished by being forced to roll a huge boulder up a hill, over and over again for eternity. Whenever Sisyphus got to the top of the hill, the boulder would roll down again.
