Will you be joining us on August 29th to discuss The Song of Achilles? Sophie is hosting book club this month and she is certain that once you pick this one up you will not be able to put it down! Madeline Miller's novel is one that truly broke her heart and she has returned to it time and again since her initial read!
The Song of Achilles is both an homage to the works of Homer and a view into the unexplored aspects of characters whose heroic lives are cut short by war. Patroclus has a raw, emotional, and poignant voice that will absolutely resonate with readers and lead to an excellent discussion!

“At once a scholar’s homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art….A book I could not put down.” —Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House
