As we approach the holiday season, we wanted to take the time to inform our readers and contributors in the United States of an exciting exhibition in Chicago, IL. The Field Museum is the current venue for "Natural Wonders: Roman Mosaic from Lod, Israel." Uncovered only in 1996, this Roman floor mosaic is arguably the world's best preserved and largest. It will stay on-location in Chicago until April 22, 2012.
We also wanted to direct you to this book review written by Dan Hofstadter for the Wall Street Journal. An expert on all things Italian and a contemporary novelist, Hofstadter shares his three favorite books about that most celebrated metropolis: Rome. Please click here to read this article.
