Family Sundays, March 20 & April 10, 1-4 pm


I will be presenting excerpts of my book, with art activities for children, at the fabulous Discovery of King Tut exhibition, as part of the Family Sunday series.

Kids will be guided to write their names in hieroglyphs, draw a mummy-coffin, and color their own Horus Eye amulet, in three short programs.

My book will be available for purchase, and I am happy to autograph it - in hieroglyphs!
