Bagels and Books: The Women of Troy and The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker NOW MEETING BY ZOOM
A daring and timely feminist retelling of The Iliad from the perspective of the women of Troy who endured it—an extraordinary follow-up to The Silence of the Girls from the Booker Prize-winning author of The Regeneration Trilogy. We have copies of The Silence of the Girls and The Women of Troy at the library. Please read one or both of them to discuss.
“An important, powerful, memorable book.”—Emily Wilson, translator of The Odyssey
Troy has fallen, and the victorious Greeks are eager to return home with the spoils of endless war—including the women of Troy themselves.
