Join us for a book club of mythic proportions! We'll be discussing Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
"At once a scholarly homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist. A book I could not put down." Ann Patchett
Mary Renault lives again! declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller s thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer s enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction s brightest lights and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCullough s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes."
Our Book Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6pm. We meet upstairs at the store, so please contact us with any accessibility concerns, and we'll make arrangements. We're always happy to see new faces, and there's no month-to-month obligation. Please join us for a fun, casual discussion, and enjoy some refreshments.
