##Join or Watch the Live Hangout
We’re doing our kickoff hangout on Wednesday, January 13th at 9 p.m. EST. You won’t need to have read EPO yet. This is the first in a series of weekly hangouts hosted by the litgeeks team to facilitate discussion around the reading. (Schedule TBA)

Or view and chat with us on the live YouTube page: Winter of Origins – Week 1 – Kick-off Hangout - YouTube
Jeremy started a resources thread on the forum, “Digital Resources for Ever-Present Origin,” containing secondary sources, audio and video lectures, and other helpful content to help build the hype(r)text around EPO.
As we progress through the weeks, we’ll add more resources to enrich the discussion—but we also hope that you and our fellow readers will help us find and create new resources, new directions for thought and creativity, through the process of our dialogue.
If you have an idea for something you’d like to see develop here, propose it! And let us know how we can help…
