Description

Join children’s book author and Egyptologist Dr. Malayna Evans for a live, virtual time traveling adventure!

Hear Dr. Evans read selections from her middle-grade time travel book, Aria Jones and the Guardian’s Wedja, then use clues about ancient Egyptian mastabas to win over the Excellent Spirit and help our heroes escape a tomb in an interactive activity. Dr. Evans will also share her path from Egyptologist to author and will answer questions and give tips about becoming a writer!

Signed copies of book one, Jagger Jones and the Mummy's Ankh, and book two, Aria Jones and the Guardian’s Wedja, will be available to order from the Suq Gift Shop.
