Margaret George: The Splendor Before the Dark: A Novel of the Emperor Nero — in conversation with Laura Kamoie

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

From The Autobiography of Henry VIII in 1986 to Elizabeth I, George has written compelling historical and biographical fiction. Picking up where The Confessions of Young Nero left off, George’s new book follows Nero Augustus as he leads the Roman Empire into a period of unparalleled power and wealth. But after a decade, catastrophe strikes. Rome suffers a devastating fire, Nero becomes the target of angry rumors, and an oracle pronounces that much worse is to come. With her signature command of detail, vivid characters, and suspenseful plotting, George makes a distant era immediate. George will be in conversation with Laura Kamoie, historian and co-author of the novel My Dear Hamilton.
