Book Talk With Susan Schulten: a History of America in 100 Maps

When: Tue., Nov. 19, 5:30-6:30 p.m. 2019

Join author and historian Susan Schulten for a talk on her latest book, "A History of America in 100 Maps." Some of these maps were made by established cartographers, while others were made by unknown people such as Cherokee tribal leaders, soldiers on the front and the first generation of girls to be formally educated. Some were tools of statecraft and diplomacy, and others were instruments of social reform or even advertising and entertainment. When considered together, they demonstrate that maps both reflect and influence historical change. A book signing will follow. For information, contact emma.ito@lva.virginia.gov or call 692-3726.
