Emma Southon in Conversation with Elodie Harper
Wednesday 6th September 2023
18:30 at Waterstones, London - Kensington
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.
