PIZZA PARTY with Jonathan Stokes -- THE THRIFTY GUIDE TO ANCIENT ROME and THE THRIFTY GUIDE TO THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Start: 

February 7, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Join GGP for a pizza party with Joanathan Stokes, author of THE THRIFTY GUIDE TO ANCIENT ROME and THE THRIFTY GUIDE TO THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, on Wednesday, February 7th at 7:00 p.m.

From the publishing house that brought you the Who Was? books comes the next big series to make history approachable, engaging, and funny!

The Thrifty Guide to Ancient Rome contains information vital to the sensible time traveler:

   • Where can I find a decent hotel room in ancient Rome for under five sesterces a day? Is horse parking included? 
   • What do I do if I’m attacked by barbarians? 
   • What are my legal options if I’m fed to the lions at the Colosseum? 
 
All this is answered and more. There is handy advice on finding the best picnicking spots to watch Julius Caesar’s assassination at the Roman Forum in 44 BC, as well as helpful real estate tips to profit from the great Roman fire of AD 64. There are even useful recommendations on which famous historical figures to meet for lunch, and a few nifty pointers on how to avoid being poisoned, beheaded, or torn apart by an angry mob.
 
If you had a time travel machine and could take a vacation anywhere in history, this is the only guidebook you would need!

The Thrifty Guide to the American Revolution provides useful information for the practical time traveler, like:
 
   • Where can I find a decent hotel room in colonial New England? Are major credit cards accepted? 
   • How do I join the Boston Tea Party without winding up in a British prison? 
   • How can I score a lunch with Alexander Hamilton?
 
This guide answers these fiery, burning questions with the marshmallows of information. There is handy advice on how to join Paul Revere’s spy ring at the Green Dragon Tavern, how to enlist in General Washington’s rebel army, and how to summon the strength to storm a British gun battery when you haven’t eaten for three days.
 
If you had a time travel machine and could take a vacation anywhere in history, this is the only guidebook you would need!
