Egyptologist Bob Brier will discuss why Egyptian history and culture continue to fascinate so many people. His chronicle of “Egyptomania” covers a surprisingly wide swath, from Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt and the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb, to Hollywood films, novels, and dime-store kitsch. ** Free parking available in the 52 Oxford St. garage -- Reception to follow in the Semitic Museum --
