STRONG WOMEN IN HISTORY AT BARNES & NOBLE CHESTERFIELD CANCELLED
CANCELLED: Barnes and Noble Chesterfield Town Center book signing on March 28th is cancelled in keeping with federal and state recommendations for the public interest. Barnes and Noble plans to reschedule its events when the health emergency is over.
Writers J. Thomas Brown and John Maxwell will be reading from their historical novels about strong women in history at Barnes and Noble Chesterfield Town Center on March 28th, 2020, at 3 p.m.
John Maxwell novels Susanna, Mother of Columbus and Phillippa, Wife of Columbus, look at the world of Christopher Columbus through the eyes of the women in his life. John takes what truths can be discovered about Columbus before his first voyage and weaves a narrative that gives voice to these incredibly strong women.
J. Thomas Brown will read from his novel, The Land of Three Houses, which is inspired by true events. His boyhood home in the Tohickon Valley, rich in history, was taken by eminent domain and demolished. The entire Tohickon Valley, along with farms, homes, mills, and settlers’ graves, was denuded and flooded to create Nockamixon State Park and Lake Nockamixon. Much of the story is woven around three strong women of the 1790s, including Madam Germaine de Staèl, an Enlightenment thinker and salonnière whose pen and wit caused Napoleon to ban her from Paris.
Event: March 28, 2020 3 p.m.
Address: Barnes and Noble Chesterfield Town Center, 11500 Midlothian Tnpk, Space 440, Richmond, VA 23235
