New Dominion Bookshop to host talk on A Guide to Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia

New Dominion BookshopNew Dominion Bookshop (404 E Main St., Charlottesville) will host a book talk and signing with Laura A. Macaluso, author of A Guide to Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia, on Saturday, August 4, at 4 p.m. This event is free to attend.

Few prominent Americans are as associated with a place as Thomas Jefferson is with Virginia. The heart of “Jefferson Country” is his house and plantation at Monticello, but Jefferson traveled the breadth of his home state, from his time at William & Mary in Williamsburg to the new state capital at Richmond and his retreat and plantation at Poplar Forest, near Lynchburg. In the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jefferson was inspired to write his only book, Notes on the State of Virginia. Laura A. Macaluso demonstrates the many facets of the man, the scholar, and the statesman in this guide to the Virginia he loved.

Laura A. Macaluso, PhD, researches and writes about art, cultural heritage, and material culture. She has degrees in art history and the humanities from Southern Connecticut State University, Syracuse University in Italy, and Salve Regina University. In 2018, The Public Artscape of New Haven: Themes in the Creation of a City Image will be published by McFarland & Company, and Monument Culture: International Perspectives on the Future of Monuments in a Changing World, of which she is the editor, will be published by Rowman & Littlefield Inc. This is her third book for The History Press.
