Do You Enjoy Reading? … literature? … history? … biography?
NICC Libraries subscribe to the publication, Slightly Foxed, which is available in print at the Peosta campus library. This magazine introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal. Good-humored, unpretentious and a bit eccentric, it’s more like a well-read friend than a literary review. As an added bonus, all College students, faculty, and staff, have access to a rich and varied collection of podcast episodes.
The most recent installment (episode 35) discusses Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Enjoy the discussion of this work by Prof. Andy Merrills, Assoc. Professor of Ancient History at the Univ. of Leicester in England.
We spotlight the most recent episode of the podcast series, and also welcome you to download and enjoy this and other digital content available from the NICC Libraries. Edward Gibbon’s famous text is available at NICC in print, audiobook. It is also available online in many editions, including the 7 volume set (1909-1913) linked here. Gibbon originally published his history in 1776, and it went through several editions in his lifetime (1737-1794).
