Madeline Miller will Present her Critically Acclaimed New Softcover Novel ~ Circe

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Madeline Miller, The New York Times Bestselling Author of The Song of Achilles, will Present her New Softcover Novel Circe.

ABOUT MADELINE MILLER:  Madeline Miller was born in Boston and attended Brown University where she earned her BA and MA in Classics.  She lives in Narbeth, PA with her husband and two children.  The Song of Achilles was awarded the Orange Prize for Fiction and has been translated into 25 languages.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  "A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times Bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born.  But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother.  Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians.  To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.
