Somers Library Book Group meets to discuss Madeline Miller’s “Song of Achilles”
September 16 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Achilles, the “best of all the Greeks,” is strong, swift and beautiful. Achilles forges an inseparable bond with Patroclus, and together the cruel Fates will test them both. This rendering of the Trojan War is a “dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and a battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.”
Somers Library-sponsored book group is led by Diana Cunningham, Librarian, who selects the books to be discussed, chosen in consultation with Tara Ferretti, Head of Public Services, with feedback and suggestions from the group. Group is open to any Somers Library user; copies of books to be discussed are reserved for the group. New members are always welcome. Join us!
Please register online or call the library in order to have access to this meeting.
Our programs are supported by the Friends of the Somers Library through our patrons’ generous contributions.
