The Carlos Museum Bookshop


Dr. Kara Cooney will visit the Carlos Museum and discuss her new book, The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut's Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt. In this lecture, Dr. Cooney offers a remarkable interpretation of how Hatshepsut, the daughter of a usurper king expected to produce a male heir to legitimize her father's dynasty, rapidly but methodically consolidated power – and why she fell from public favor just as quickly. The book is available now in the Museum Bookshop, and will be available for purchase before and after the lecture. Read more here...

Through January 30, 2015, please note that the Museum Bookshop is open Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 4 pm, Saturday 11am to 5pm, and Sunday 1pm to 5 pm.
