    "Ancient Wisdom and Modern Heartache: How Rome Helped to Shape The U.S."

    Central Senior Services/ Parkway Central Library

    1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
    • Thursday April 25th 2019, 11:00am to 12:30pm

    Explore the Roman world with distinguished professors from Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, who understand the connections between this ancient empire and our democratic republic. This free, four-part series is sponsored by Central Senior Services of the Parkway Central Library. All interested persons are invited to attend. The second program in this series is called "The Daily Life of Ordinary Romans." It will be presented on Thursday, April 25th at 11:00 A.M. in Montgomery Auditorium.


    Professor Campbell Grey of the University of Pennsylvania returns as our presenter. We are used to viewing Rome through the actions of generals and politicians. In this lecture, Professor Grey will focus on ordinary people, who like us, worried about paying their bills, having their children marry well and what to have for dinner.
