About This Event

Join us in the GPL Conference Room on Tuesday, April 9, at 10 am for a prerecorded Author Talk with Madeline Miller.

You’re invited to a fascinating exploratory conversation with Madeline Miller, bestselling author of The Song of Achilles and Circe, as she chats with us about her body of work and her process in retelling Greek classics into modern epics in fiction. 

Miller is known for writing mythological realism.  Miller’s novels re-imagine stories from Greek mythology, while focusing on themes that she considers timeless, like dysfunctional families and homesickness.

The Song of Achilles, Miller’s debut novel, set in Greece,  tells the story from Patroclus’ point of view and the bond that grew between him and Achilles. Circe, Miller’s second novel is a modern reimagining told from the perspective of Circe, an enchantress in Greek mythology who is featured in Homer’s Odyssey.

This program, brought to you by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library in partnership with the Library Speakers Consortium, is free and open to the public.
