The OpenBooks discussion series, which runs October – May, concludes this season with a discussion on Thursday, May 5, 7:00 pm, in the Montana Room of the library.  The featured book is Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff.  This biography has been called stellar, long on facts that dust away fiction’s myths.  These discussions, which are sponsored by the Great Falls Public Library Foundation, are free and open to the public.  Penny Hughes-Briant facilitates.
