I've been fascinated with Egyptology since I was a little kid.

That must have been such a thrill to hear Dr. Brier speak in person.


Gypsy-It was a great event. It was amazing to see closely like the taped Dr. Brier was to seeing him in person. He really is quite good at making his subject matter interesting and accessible to a lay audience.
The Toledo Museum later reported that nearly 600 people showed up, so my estimate of 500 was pretty close. Dr. Brier's books were quickly snapped up--gone before we could find where they were selling them. I'm glad I happened to catch the announcement of the speech, and that we could go down there. Most folks saw it in the newspaper (according to a show of hands when the museum's director asked that question), but I saw it on Facebook before I saw it in the online version of The Blade.
