Meet the Author: Sue Eisenfeld
(Warrenton, VA) Friday, September 16, 2016 —Sue Eisenfeld will discuss her work Shenandoah: A Story of Betrayal and Conservation at the John Marshall branch library on Sunday, September 25, 2 p.m.
Ms. Eisenfeld will discuss the often-forgotten history behind the creation of Shenandoah National Park. Her years of off-trail hiking in the park led to discoveries that inspired her book. In her presentation she will share the stories and photographs that she gathered along the way.
“I decided I wanted to write the stories of what I have seen, heard, touched and discovered as a hiker in a de-peopled and re-wilded park — a place that was once unfound and inhabited and is now ‘back to nature’ once again,” said Eisenfeld.
This free program is made possible through the generous support of John and Linda Suter.
