Virtual Book Club: 'Medicus'

Wednesday, October 27 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us to discuss the October book club selection, Medicus by Ruth Downie.

Military doctor Gaius Petrius Ruso just wants to start over after his divorce and his father’s death. A posting with the 20th legion in the remote province of Britannia seems like just the thing—until his rescue of the slave girl Tilla and a series of murders that no one wants to investigate complicates matters.

Book club will begin with a presentation on Greco-Roman medicine before delving into this historical murder mystery. 

Free and open to all, pre-registration required.
