Sponsored by the PWC Arts Council and The Clearbrook Foundation, this day of poetry has been organized by the Poet Laureate Circle, an ever expanding group of poets in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park. The Poet Laureate Circle was formed in May 2014 when radio personality Guy Lambert of WPGC- 95.5 crowned the first Prince William County Poets Laureate, Robert Scott and Alexandra Hailey, at SummerFest in Lake Ridge, VA. In 2016, Guy crowned Kathy Smaltz, our county’s current reigning Poet Laureate. Through the efforts of its founder, June Forte, and The Poet Laureate Circle’s current organizers, Alice Mergler and Cathy Hailey, and its active members, poetry is reaching a wider audience and elevating the literary arts in Prince William County.

Free Book Talk

Sunday, 10/08/2017 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Join us for a free book talk with Doug Crenshaw on his book "Richmond Shall Not Be Given Up" at 1:30 p.m. About the Book: For seven days, Lee planned ambitious attacks and launched them, one after another, hoping not just to drive Federals from the gates of Richmond but to obliterate them entirely. In "Richmond Shall Not Be Given Up", historian Doug Crenshaw follows a battle so desperate that, ever-after, soldiers would remember that week simply as The Seven Days. McClellan reeled. The tide of war turned. The Army of Northern Virginia was born. About the Author: Doug Crenshaw is a volunteer historic interpreter for the Richmond National Battlefield Park. A member of the Richmond Civil War Roundtable, he is a speaker, presenter, tour leader, and the author of books on Glendale and Fort Harrison. Doug is a descendant of the Sydnor family, which lived at Beaver Damn Creek during that battle, and the Binford family, which live behind the Malvern Hill battlefield.Attachments
