Madeline Miller & Mary Norris

Tuesday, April 9, 7:30 p.m.

This event will pair two powerful authors for a festive evening of Greek art, myth, travel, and food! With vivid characters, poetic language, and page-turning suspense, Madeline Miller’s #1 New York Times bestselling novel Circe is a triumph of storytelling featuring the Odyssey’s most infamous female figure; it’s an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, love, and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world. Mary Norris, the beloved “Comma Queen” of The New Yorker’s copy department, returns with a witty, wise, and charming book about language, love, and the wine-dark sea of Greece. Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen is an unforgettable account of both her life-long love affair with words and her solo adventures to the land of ouzo and olive trees.

6:30 p.m.: Enjoy a pre-event tour of works from Greece in the DMA’s collection.
