Today’s topic is how I first became aware of Hera. As I am of Greek heritage, it is no surprise that I was exposed to stories about the Theoi. One of the books that I read at an early age was the D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths (interestingly, when I found a hard bound edition of it at a thrift store, I bought it for my daughter). I later got a copy of Edith Hamilton’s Greek Mythology, which gave more information, but was still not enough for me because it still tended to gloss over stories about the Greek Goddesses.
As I grew to adulthood, there were other sources like The Greek Myths compiled by Robert Graves which also gave me additional insights.
As I developed in my studies of the Goddess, there were other sources that I used to learn about the Gods and Goddesses of Hellas.
