Join the Rowley Library Book Club on Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion of 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.
