If you are in the Richmond area on March 30th, I encourage you to attend this year’s celebration of Virginia Women in History. Buckingham County’s own Louise Harrison McCraw (1893–1975) will be one of the honorees.

The author of a dozen inspirational novels and co-founder of Richmond’s Braille Circulating Library, Louise’s work touched thousands, inspiring the blind and the sighted alike.

You can read more about Louise and her work in this month’s Buckingham Beacon.  If you aren’t able to pick up a copy, you can download a PDF at Fluvanna Review.

The award ceremony and reception will take place on Thursday evening, March 30th, at the Library of Virginia, 800 East Broad Street, Richmond.  There is no charge for the event.  Visit the Library’s website for detailed information:  Virginia Women in History.
