Teaching The Egypt Game for what seems like the millionth time in your career? There is a new novel out called Cleopatra’s Moon, by Vicky Alvear Shecter which might tie in nicely. Ms. Schecter also penned a nonfiction book for middle readers about the politically savvy queen, entitled Cleopatra Rules. (One more informational text, Thank you, Ms. Shecter!)
Yesterday, brilliant editor, Cheryl Klein posted an interview with the author. You can read it here. Also, in August, The Huffington Post ran this article about the book and ways it can be tied into SEAL initiatives, and discussions of sexual harassment and bullying of girls in schools.
