Sunday Book Brunch Featuring Janet Benton and Madeline Miller

Sunday, March 24, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Authors Janet Benton and Madeline Miller talk about their books at this special Sunday brunch event.

Benton will discuss her debut novel, “Lilli de Jong.” Set Philadelphia during 1883, the historical novel is the story of a young unmarried Quaker woman, abandoned by the father of the child she is carrying and banished from her home. The story is told through entries in the woman’s diary and reveals the harrowing  struggle for survival set in motion by her decision to keep her newborn daughter.

Miller will discuss “Circe,” the follow up to her New York Times bestseller “The Song of Achilles.” An epic spanning thousands of years, “Circe”  is a story of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world.

The doors on Hinds Plaza will open at 11 a.m. when tea and pastries will be served. The author talks will begin at 11:30 am. Labyrinth Books will be on hand for the book signing that will follow.
