Sophie Reviews Circe

Madeline Miller’s Circe was a fantastic way to end a rather difficult year for me. I have to say that when I first opened the cover and began to read, I had no idea I would find myself completely immersed. Ancient gods and goddesses come to life in this book.

She was no more to me than a witch who turned men into pigs and helped Odysseus on his journey home.

exciting job positions. She has been a model, an actress, a flight
attendant, a switchboard operator, a secretary, and she wrote for a radio
show as well. Higgins Clark has said she got some of her story ideas from
her time as a switchboard operator. She even listened in on Tennessee

Happy Birthday, Sylvia Beach!

For Women’s History Month, I’ve chosen to celebrate American expatriate publisher and bookstore owner, Sylvia Beach. In the fall of 1919, Beach opened Shakespeare & Co., the most (in)famous bookstore east of the Atlantic. Beach was a key part in the financial support & publishing of many modernist writers in the 1920s, including James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway.
