Connie Lapallo with Dark EnoughGenealogists should never forget that while they are fact finders, they are also destined to be storytellers. But actually writing out the stories of our ancestors can seem an impossible task. GRIVA’s October program features a skilled researcher and author who has turned her Jamestown research into engaging books about both her ancestors and the famous men and women of their time.

Author Connie Lapallo will present a program entitled “”Writing and Telling the Story of Those in Our Family Tree”” on October 27, 2015. Ms. LaPallo is the author of Dark Enough to See the Stars in a Jamestown Sky and When the Moon Has No More Silver. She has begun writing the third novel in this trilogy as well as a biography of Sir Thomas Gates.

Join us at 7:45 p.m. in the Beck Room at the Bon Air Presbyterian Church, 9201 West Huguenot Road, Richmond, Virginia. There will be a short GRIVA meeting before the program with refreshments and social time afterwards. Our meetings are free to the public and visitors are welcome.
