Book Club: Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff

Join us on July 15 at 2 pm at the Edison Main Library, 340 Plainfield Avenue, as we discuss Stacy Schiff’s book on “Cleopatra.”  Everyone is welcome.        

“When you are done tallying up what you think you know about Cleopatra VII, last pharaoh of Egypt, most of it will be wrong. That's because most of it was cooked up by male Roman historians who hate the idea of a female monarch who had so much freedom and so much wealth. In Cleopatra: A Life, historian Stacy Schiff, a Pulitzer Prize-winner, sifted through stray notes, letters to Semitic princes, writers that have never been looked at for decades, and casts a critical eye on the usual Roman writers gave their commentary on Cleopatra.”
