Open Book Adult Book Discussion Group- Cleopatra: A Life

Book cover.

Tuesday, March 31, 2015, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Oglethorpe County Library's Adult Book Discussion Group, Open Book, will be discussing Stacy Schiff's biographical account of the life of Cleopatra on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at 11:30am. Cleopatra, born a goddess, and only 18 when she became Queen, has gone down in history for all the wrong reasons. Schiff takes the opportunity to present her research of the history and separate the facts from fiction in this account of the magnetic queen whose death ushered in a new world. Books are available for check out at the circulation desk and everyone is invited to attend the discussion. Registration is not required, but you can call 706-743-8817 to be added to the email list to receive important updates and reminders about the book club.
