Layne PierceThe Ides of March

Layne P.

“Beware the Ides of March…” — thus is Caesar warned of his impending doom. Layne’s book talk presentation looked at the legendary Roman Emperor Caesar through various fiction and non-fiction works. [Note: The Ides refers to the 15th day of the months of March, May, July and October — and the 13th day of each of the other 8 months. The “Ides of March” is the most notorious, as it was on that date that the emperor Caesar was assassinated.]
