Kona Library Book Club
The Kona Library Book Club meets Tuesday, June 18th at 11:00AM on the Kailua Kona Library lanai to discuss Cleopatra by Stacey Schiff. Rather than a devastatingly beautiful femme fatale, Cleopatra, according to Schiff, was a shrewd power broker who knew how to use her manifold gifts—wealth, power, and intelligence—to negotiate advantageous political deals and military alliances. Cleopatra was one of the most authoritative rulers in the history of humanity, inheriting at the age of 18 one of the greatest kingdoms ever known. Join us for a lively discussion and light refreshments. New members are welcome.
The Book Club will meet in July to discuss The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides.
