Quadruple book launch

We celebrate the recent appearance of four new books on the Ancient Near East. The authors or editors will give a short introduction this afternoon. The titles presented will not be available for purchase on the spot, but the publishers are providing flyers and/or order sheets.

After the presentations we will proceed to a nearby café (to be determined) to raise a glass. Please join us!
