Lunenburg Historical Society Presents George Washington – Kenbridge Victoria Dispatch


On Sunday, June 5 at 2 p.m. at the Ripberger Public Library in Kenbridge, the Lunenburg County Historical Society invites you to learn things about George Washington that history books don’t adequately cover.

In a well-researched book that reads almost like a novel, Mount Vernon Love Story will introduce you to Washington, the man and his loves, including his wife Martha, whom he called “Patsy”, and of course, his famous estate, Mount Veron. This first publication (1968) by popular contemporary fiction writer Mary Higgins Clark, was written in a pleasing style that grabs the reader’s attention. However, because the book is carefully researched, it is endorsed and sold at Mount Vernon

Your host for the Book Conversation will be Connie C. Krupa, an avid reading advocate and recently retired elementary school teacher, who joined the staff of the Lunenburg County Public Library System as Children’s Programs Coordinator . The historical society is delighted to have the dynamic Krupa – dressed in one of its many costumes – to plan and lead the program.

Would you like to read Mount Vernon Love Story before the meeting? There are copies of the book at both county public libraries. Call to see if one is available for departure: Ripberger/Kenbridge: (434) 676-3456; Victoria: (434) 696-3416. Amazon has paperback copies for sale. If you are a member of Amazon’s “Kindle Unlimited”, you can get a Kindle edition for free. Of course, we think you’ll enjoy this program even if you haven’t read the book.
