It has come to our attention that we have grossly underestimated how many people are thinking about the Roman Empire on the regular (#RomanEmpire). To remedy, this we are sharing some titles for all the classics lovers out there including history, biography, literary fiction, and political thrillers.

If you're in New York this fall we hope you consider joining us for a special Live from NYPL program "Mary Beard with Tim Gunn: Emperor of Rome" on November 3, 2023. The program will also be offered via Livestream.

Summaries provided via NYPL’s catalog, which draws from multiple sources. Click through to each book’s title for more.
