mediabistro.com is hosting a book party for Nina Burleigh next Monday to celebrate the publication of Mirage: Napoleon’s Scientists and the Unveiling of Egypt, a history of the late 18th-century French archaelogical expeditions that revolutionized our understanding of ancient Egypt—an odd change of pace for a People staff writer, you’d think, if you didn’t know she’d also written a book about the founding of the Smithsonian. Anyway, if you’re free that evening, you can RSVP to join the author at Mantra that evening for the cash-bar festivities.
