If you are interested in history then this CCDSpeaks event is for you! With host Nat Tracey-Miller `05, Upper School history teacher, author, and industry leader Dr. Jeremiah McCall will discuss his latest book, Rivalries that Destroyed the Roman Republic, the ever-present fascination with ancient history and Romans, and teaching at Country Day.
Rivalries is the story of how some Roman aristocrats grew so competitive in their political rivalries that they destroyed their Republic in the late second to mid-first century BCE.
The chat begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12 in the Upper School library. RSVPs required.
