Emma Southon in Conversation with Elodie Harper

We are very pleased to welcome to Kensington ancient historian Emma Southon, in conversation with acclaimed novelist of The Wolf Den and The House With the Golden Door Elodie Harper,  to discuss the release of Emma's new book A History of the Roman Empire in 21 Women

In this alternative history, Emma Southon traces the story of the Roman Empire through women: Vestal Virgins and sex workers, business owners and poets, martyrs and saints. Each gives a different perspective on women's lives and how they changed, across time and across class lines. 

Emma Southon is an ancient historian and bookseller working at Waterstones. She is the author of Agrippina: Empress, Exile, Hustler, Whore, a Best Book of the Year for the New Statesman, and A Fatal Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Armed with a PhD in Ancient History, she also co-hosts the History is Sexy podcast. She lives in Belfast with her cat Livia. 

Books from both authors will be available to purchase in store at the event.
