Special Release: Write like an Egyptian with Michael Hoffen

Michael Hoffen is the youngest-ever recipient of the annual Emerson Prize, awarded by the Concord Review for outstanding promise in history. While still in middle school he was introduced to the joys of translating ancient texts and never looked back. During the pandemic, Michael decided to embark on an ambitious project to bring ancient Egyptian literature to life outside the classroom. ‘Be A Scribe’ is Michael’s first book in a series intended for young readers. When not chasing down new stories to translate, Michael enjoys biking, swimming, and rock climbing.
