The stories of two women 2,000 years apart -- an ancient Athenian female philosopher and courtesan, and a 19th-century Scots countess married to a British ambassador -- mix and match in Karen Essex's new historical novel Stealing Athena, about the Parthenon being built and then being partially dismantled as the Elgin Marbles are transported to England. Meet the author at A Great Good Place for Books (6120 La Salle Ave., Oakland) on Tuesday, June 24. 7 p.m. GGPBooks.com
