You may remember the story of the Odyssey from high school: Odysseus, the cyclops, the witch Circe and how she turned his men to pigs.

Author Madeline Miller has written two New York Times' best-selling books retelling these classics. Her newest book "Circe" imagines the story of the goddess from her own perspective.

Miller will speak at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

This segment aired on September 3, 2019.
