A festive evening of Greek art, myth, travel, and food!
With unforgettably vivid characters, poetic language, and page-turning suspense, Madeline Miller’s #1 New York Times bestseller Circe is a story of the Odyssey’s most infamous female figure and a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world. In discovering the power of witchcraft, Circe is banished by a threatened Zeus to a deserted island, where she hones her craft, tames wild beasts, and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in mythology. When pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians, Circe must summon all of her strength to protect what she loves most in an epic battle. Miller is also the author of The Song of Achilles, which won the Orange Prize for Fiction.
Mary Norris, the beloved Comma Queen of The New Yorker’s celebrated copy department, returns with a witty, wise, and charming book about language, love, and the wine-dark sea of Greece. Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen is Norris’s unforgettable account of her lifelong affair with words, her passion for Greek gods and myths, her solo journeys in the land of olive trees and ouzo, and her fresh take on Greece and the exotic yet strangely familiar language that so deeply influences our own.
