Madeline Miller

The Eugene Public Library is hosting a literary star in a live-stream talk and Q&A, and it should be fun. Madeline Miller took 10 years to write her first novel while teaching Greek and Latin on the side, but the result was stunning. Her 2011 debut novel — The Song of Achilles — is the poignant story of a love affair between the mythological figures Achilles and Patroclus. It made The New York Times bestseller list and won Britain’s prestigious Orange Prize for Fiction, making Miller just the fourth debut novelist to win the coveted prize. “The Song of Achilles is at once a scholar’s homage to the Iliad and a startling original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist,” wrote author Emma Donoghue. Miller’s second novel — Circe — came out in 2018 and is now being adapted as an eight-part miniseries by HBO Max. The novels have been translated into more than 25 languages, and her essays have appeared in The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, Lapham’s Quarterly and

Petaluma readers can’t get enough of Madeline Miller

The top selling titles at Copperfield’s Books, in Petaluma, for the week of April 5-April 11, 2021. For the third week since its publication, Amanda Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb: An Inaugural Poem for the Country” is the No. 1 title on Petaluma’s Bestselling Fiction and Nonfiction Books List. This not only marks the first time that a book of poetry has repeated three times in recent memory, it may be the first time since 1993 that a single individual poem has spent time on top of the list at all. That was 1993, and the poem was Maya Angelou’s “On the Pulse of the Morning,” yet another inaugural poem, in that case for President Bill Clinton. “The Hill We Climb,” by the way, will be released again in a full collection of Gorman’s poetry in September of this year.
