I Claudius & Claudius the God by Robert Graves

"Claudius the stammerer made it his business to watch from the sidelines and record the antics of the imperial households. Here, in this fictionalized biography, Claudius records the intrigue, lusts, perversions and bloodshed of the Imperial Roman households." - amazon.com

"Robert Graves (1895-1985) was an English poet, translator, and novelist, one of the leading English men of letters in the twentieth century. He fought in World War I and won international acclaim in 1929 with the publication of his memoir of the First World War, Good-bye to All That. After the war, he was granted a classical scholarship at Oxford and subsequently went to Egypt as the first professor of English at the University of Cairo. He is most noted for his series of novels about the Roman emperor Claudius and his works on mythology, such as The White Goddess." - amazon.com

Book Club is free, includes admission to the museum, and we are open late every Thursday until 8pm.
