Trend Watch: Cleopatra

Arguably one of the most famous women of ancient times, interest in Cleopatra has been surging lately, according to a recent article in Romantic Times Book Reviews. From the wildly popular 2010 biography Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff to the new paranormal story Queen of Kings, this ancient ruler has returned to beguile fiction and nonfiction readers alike. Two new books also pick up on the trend by telling the story of Cleopatra's fictional daughter: Lily of the Nile by Michelle Moran and Cleopatra's Daughter by Stephanie Dray. All four of these books are available from your Community Library; catch the Cleopatra bug & check one of them out today!
