There will be food: grapes, cinnamon cookies, date squares, cheese and crackers — anything with a connection to Ancient Egyptian agriculture, however flimsy — plus coffee, tea, and juices they never even heard of 5,000 years ago.
The walls will be decorated with pet-related artwork from Lord Aylmer Elementary School students, plus informational posters on a dozen gods and goddesses and lots of Ancient Egyptian fun facts.
We’ll have a couple of games (Name that Cat and Name that Cat Tune) and crafts (Egyptian amulet cootie-catchers).
My singer-songwriter friend Anni will perform two fabulous songs, including “Everybody Wants to be a Cat” (because it’s so true).
And of course there will be books. Beautiful books.
So if you’re in the National Capital Region this weekend, drop by the launch. (And if you can’t make it, be sure to check out My Cat Isis from Kids Can Press.)
