We’re honored to have Prof. Hieber at OctopodiCon. She will have a book signing and will be on panels with our other prestigious Visiting Professors.
First is Prof. Cassie McDaniel, a delightfully charming lady from Shreveport, LA who will share her enthusiasm and interest in the Seraglio Dance, and teach a class on it as well as performing for us.
Next is Prof. Amelia Anne McAlden, an Egyptologist who will share a Mummy Unwrapping, some Secret Victorian Codes, information on Tasseography, and an Artifact Club class on Hieroglyphics and Cartouche Making.
We will have their photos and bios up soon.
