I’m thrilled to announce that the US paperback of The Song of Achilles comes out TODAY! Not only does it have an eye-popping cover, but it’s also chock full of new material, including two essays on Troy and Homer, illustrations of the main characters, discussion questions, and a Q and A between me and the terrific Gregory Maguire (author of Wicked).
How to get a copy? If you want to try your hand against the fates, Ecco is sponsoring a Goodreads Giveaway. Or, for the sure thing, just head down to your local bookstore and pick one up!
I also want to take a moment to thank all the teachers who have gotten in touch to let me know that they will be teaching The Song of Achilles in their classrooms—I am so honored! Coming soon, as promised: The Song of Achilles, the teacher’s guide.
Likewise, I want to thank the book clubs who have chosen my book as one of their selections. I’ve been very much enjoying speaking with some of you over Skype, and look forward to meeting more of you in the days ahead.
Last but not least, I’ve updated my event schedule for the next several months, which includes stops in New York City, London, Boston, Oklahoma, and Indiana. Lots more to come soon!
