Chasing History: A Summer Speaker Event with Karen A. Chase
June 25 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
JRW is pleased to offer a special, free summer event with JRW member and debut novelist, Karen A. Chase. Her celebrated new book, Carrying Independence, has taken the Richmond literary scene by storm. Weeks before her packed book launch event, she had already sold out the limited-edition pre-order campaign, had an article in Richmond magazine, and been interviewed on radio and podcast programs.
This is your chance to hear for yourself how Karen carefully researched her historical novel to bring the story of the Declaration of Independence to life. Some of the questions Karen can answer for us include, “Why was there just one copy of the Declaration with the signatures?” “Which Continental Congress delegates did not attend the formal signing?” and “How were those signatures acquired?”
What could be more appropriate as we head toward the Fourth of July than hearing about a critical time in our nation’s birth at Historic St. John’s Church, where liberty found its voice!
Date: Tuesday, June 25
Time: 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
Location: Historic St. John’s Church Parish Hall, 2401 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23223
Price: Free, but please R.S.V.P
