Rosa Latinae

Rose Williams has just launched her new website!

A native of Abilene, Texas, Rose taught Latin there for many years. She's now retired but she hasn't slowed down one bit! Rose is the author of a number of clever and amusing books on classical themes. Her most recent release, The Lighter Side of the Dark Ages, "deals with the 500 years after the fall of Rome in the West, when people went right on calling themselves Roman and paying tribute to an ideal which had largely ceased to be real." Students love her books because they are readable. Rose has a witty and ironic writing style. Teachers love her books because they are well-researched and educational.

Some of Rose's other books include Once Upon the Tiber, The Labors of Aeneas: What a Pain It Was to Found the Roman Race, and Vergil for Beginners

Rose's site includes more information about all of her books as well as some wonderful, print quality teaching materials for you to try out in your Latin classroom! Enjoy!
