Miller is barely forty and has already enjoyed an extraordinarily illustrious career. having earned a BA and MA in Classics at Brown and studied in the Dramaturgy department at the Yale School of Drama, where she focused on adapting classical texts to modern idioms. Thus far, she has made exemplary use of her education. Her lyrical yet vigorous prose has brought the stories of Achilles and his fated lover Patroclus in "The Song of Achilles" and the complex and exacting enchantress Circe (who most famously, in Homer's "The Odyssey", turned Odysseus' men into pigs) to vivid life. "Circe" is currently in the number nine spot on the New York Times Bestseller List, a rarity for such a literary and provocative offering.

Join librarians Katie, Amanda, and Gregory for a lively discussion of all things Miller!

Please note that this book discussion will be held in the Administration offices on the 2nd floor.
