The Children’s Museum, which just bid farewell to the Tutankhamun:  The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs travelling exhibit last week, has a special relationship with Egypt so it should come as no surprise that they would continue to deliver Egypt to the region, an easy drive from the Louisville and Kentuckiana area.

Tori and Tut

tori-tabI don’t normally pass on entries from the Entertainment pages, but for Tori Amos, I make exceptions.  Apparently she is quite into Egyptology, or is at least going through an Egyptian phase.

According to a September 4, 2009, interview by Ruth Gillbe for The Independent, Amos recently caught the Tut Exhibition in San Francisco.  She certainly has the reading list for it. 

“I’ve been reading In the Valley of the Kings:  Howard Carter and the Mystery of King Tutankhamun’s Tomb by Daniel Myerson, and Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs by Zahi Hawass,” she said.

Tori Amos is playing at the Hammersmith Apollo, London, September 10th and 11th.
