Join us for the February meeting of the Browsers Book Club.
We will discuss Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are inclusive; we invite you to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers.
The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
A bit more about the book:
“It's a daunting effort to recast an ancient tale, but classics scholar Miller proves that she is worth of the task with this finely wrought debut grafted from the historical root of the Trojan War. By focusing on Achilles' near-fatherly love for Patroclus, we see an intimate side of the great Achilles, long overshadowed by Homer's portrayal of his exploits in war and his 'great rage' against the Trojans. Miller's homage to The Iliad is sharp and strengthened by her knowledge and exquisite prose.”
