Book Club – The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

DAI - Bibliothek

  • Lecture, Literature, Social Activity

Lively discussions on a book, accompanied by any snacks participants bring along – and more and more often the author can be integrated online.

Dr. Dorothea Fischer-Hornung facilitates the Book Club with her great passion for literature and a wonderful sense of humor. She is a recently retired Senior Lecturer from the English Department at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and faculty member of the Heidelberg Center for American Studies. Dorothea is the author of numerous publications in the field of African and Native American literature and culture, with an emphasis on dance and performance studies.
