Common Ground Virginia History Book Group | The Devil’s Half Acre

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Read and discuss compelling nonfiction books handpicked by Library staff that explore Virginia history, society, and culture. This month, we’ll discuss The Devil’s Half Acre: The Untold Story of How One Woman Liberated the South’s Most Notorious Slave Jail by Kristen Green. This latest book by Green was the topic for last month’s Weinstein Author Series event here at the Library.

Check your local public library or the FindItVA OverDrive collection to borrow titles, or purchase through the Virginia Shop or other online retailers.
