Waterstones presents the Lancaster Historical Writing Festival, celebrating the outstanding range of new historical fiction and non-fiction books with a three-day programme of events across the city centre. Bestselling author Simon Scarrow opens the festival with a talk on his magnificent new book, Day of the Caesars, the sixteenth novel in the Eagles of the Empire series. AD 55. Claudius is dead. Rome is in turmoil. And two brave heroes of the Roman army face the challenge of their lives. Emperor Claudius is dead. Nero rules. His half-brother Britannicus has also laid claim to the throne. A bloody power struggle is underway. All Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro want is a simple army life, fighting with their brave and loyal men. But Cato has caught the eye of rival factions determined to get him on their side.

To survive, Cato must play a cunning game, and enlist the help of the one man in the Empire he can trust: Macro.As the rebel force grows, legionaries and Praetorian Guards are moved like chess pieces by powerful and shadowy figures. A political game has created the ultimate military challenge. Can civil war be averted? The future of the empire is in Cato's hands Simon will talk about his latest book before taking audience questions and signing copies of his books. The event will last approximately one hour, not including the time taken for the book signing. Tickets cost £20 including a hardback copy of Day of the Caesars or £7 general admission/£5 for concessions and will be available to buy in store and online from 9am on Friday, August 11th.
