Saturday, July 21, 11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Free admission. RSVP not required.

Do you love to read? Love art? Join librarians from the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and museum staff for this bi-monthly book club. See the Story combines works of fiction & non-fiction by authors from around the world with artwork from the museum’s permanent collection.

Join us to learn about this famous leader who made history for all the wrong reasons. This month’s literary selection, Cleopatra: A Life, was inspired by the Cincinnati Art Museum‘s special feature Cagnacci: Painting Beauty and Death. The centerpiece of the feature is Cagnacci’s The Death of Cleopatra, on loan from the Pinacoteca deBrera in Milan, Italy. Explore how the fascinating subject of this painting and this book are related during this month’s Book Club.

Visitors can meet the book club in Gallery 229 for a discussion before going on a tour of the galleries.
