Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Known as the Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra and her palace shimmered with onyx, garnets, and gold. But her life was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. She was married twice, each time to a brother, and had affairs with two of the most powerful Romans of her time. However, Cleopatra has gone down in history for many of the wrong reasons. In this stunning biography, Pulitzer Prize-winner Stacy Schiff separates fact from fiction to tell the story of the shrewd strategist, ingenious negotiator, and magnetic queen whose life and death ushered in a new world order.
