Current Book Title
Join the Rowley Library Book Club on Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion of The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. A brilliant retelling of Homer’s classic tale, the Iliad, it’s an action-packed adventure filled with legendary heroes and an epic love story, as young Prince Patroclus follows his friend Achilles into war, little knowing what the future holds.
Pick up a copy of the current book at the library, then drop in to share your thoughts. We will meet on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., and future titles are listed below.
We will have copies of the current title waiting at the library! Reserve your own copy, or pick up a copy of the book at the library, then join us for a discussion on the first Thursday of the month from September to June at 6:30 p.m. All titles are subject to change.
