Book Club's December Pick
Published on Monday, December 16, 2013 - 12:20pm
The Mt. Pleasant Book Club is reading Cleopatra: A Life, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stacy Schiff. Inheritor not only of Egypt, but of family ways that included incest, assassination, and waging civil war against her siblings, Cleopatra was famous long before becoming involved with the two most powerful men in the Roman Empire.
In this wonderful and compelling biography, Schiff separates fact from myth to paint a truly fascinating portrait of a misunderstood and surprisingly obscure historical figure.
We will discuss this book Wednesday, Jan. 8 in the large meeting room at 7 p.m.
