A Book Recommendation from the Reference Librarians

Imperium, by Robert Harris *Click here to place a hold* Imperium: a Novel of Ancient Rome
By Robert Harris

Imagine yourself walking the streets of Rome with Cicero. Imagine the Forum and the Senate, and all the political intrigue. This book is a riveting account of Cicero’s rise to power as seen through the eyes of his personal secretary, Tiro. This book is so well-researched and an extraordinary (fictional) education of the times. The political picture presented here shows us that little has changed in 2,000 years.
