TALKING TO HOMER a 6-DAY READING RETREAT led by multi-award winning author Madeline Miller in Costa Navarino, Greece
An exclusive cultural event will take place in Greece from September 26th to October 1st, 2019.
It will be hosted in Westin Costa Navarino, an idyllic destination in one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking places in the Mediterranean with a history spanning across 4.500 years!
The 6-day “reading retreat” is designed for a limited number of participants, with the award-winning American author of the iconic books “Circe” and “Song of Achilles”, Mrs. Madeline Miller. Miller draws her inspiration from the writings of Homer and is well known for her ability to bring the myths into contemporary reality, creating a relevance that promotes the ancient Greek spirit and culture.
The retreat will feature reading sessions, workshops and open discussions with the author, as well as interactive activities and tours. The in-depth journey into Homer’s myths and stories will be facilitated by the contribution of the well-known Classics Professor and an honorable researcher at The Academy of Athens, Dr. Evi Papadodima.
Participants will immerse into an ancient culture and nurture their souls with the wise learnings of the glorious past. They will be given the opportunity to interact with like-minded people and enjoy the experience of visiting the pristine beaches of Greece, a land of spectacular beauty with an endless variety of landscapes.
Madeline Miller’s first novel, “The Song of Achilles”, was awarded the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction and was a New York Times bestseller.
Her second novel, “Circe”, an instant #1 New York Times bestseller, was the Book of the Month Club’s best book of the year and was chosen as the Best Fantasy 2018 by Goodreads. It is a rich, imaginative narrative of the emotional life of a woman, who for centuries has been the embodiment of emasculation. Madeline Miller has successfully turned Circe’s story to an epic tale of courage and female empowerment with major relevance.
The event is exclusive with a limited number of participants. The list will be finalized by the end of March 2019, the latest. Early bird participation has been announced for the period until the 31st of January. Tickets can be found through Eventbrite and exclusive travel agents.
