|Drag queen Cleo sez: “Take the class. But first you must kneel and bow to me!”
Isn’t technology grand? Now you can study with a renown Cleopatra expert, online. Dr. Prudence Jones of Montclair State University is offering a summer online class on the great queen.
Dr. Jones holds a Ph.D. and M.A. from Harvard University and a B.A. from Wellesley College. She has published three books and numerous articles and was one of the experts included in the 2008 BBC/Discovery Channel documentary, Cleopatra: Portrait of a Killer.
I used her two books on Cleo–Cleopatra: A Sourcebook and Cleopatra (Life & Times)–in my research for Cleopatra Rules! and was thrilled when she agreed to read my manuscript before publication.
Here’s the thing, though–my book is for kids. By necessity, some, er…not age-appropriate details were glossed over. This class is for adults, so no holds barred.
Yup, now you can roll in the risque’! Savor the salacious! Pursue the prurient! Oops no, I mean, now you can study for yourself the real details on how the great queen lived, died and endured in our collective fantasy world. Plus, she is including Cleopatra Rules! in some of her discussions.
How cool is that?
Seriously, sign-up. Or face the wrath of Drag-Queen Cleo Action Figure!
