Author Madeline Miller, the mind behind New York Times best-sellers “The Song of Achilles” and “Circe,” visited the University of Scranton on Saturday night for a dinner in her honor.

Miller, who signed books before the event at the DeNaples Center, received the 2019 Royden B. Davis, S.J., Distinguished Author Award from the Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library.

Guests enjoyed a buffet dinner before the program, which included a talk by Miller and a question-and-answer session with the audience. Miller, who lives outside Philadelphia, also gave two readings from “Circe.”

Additionally that night, the library and the Friends honored Charles E. Kratz, dean of the library and information fluency, who is retiring soon.
