Enjoy a copy of A Civil Life in an Uncivil Time: Julia Wilbur's Struggle for Purpose, along with either a book club talk OR a tour of Civil War sights in Old Town led by author Paula Whitacre. Written by the parent of two T.C. alums, the book is a biography of a remarkable Alexandrian who aided escaped slaves during the Civil War. Besides a great story of a woman who re-invents herself in mid-life (in the 19th century, no less), you'll recognize several Alexandria and Washington places and events.
The author will also visit your book club or take a group of up to eight people on a guided walking tour of "Julia Wilbur's Alexandria."
Visit or tour to be arranged at mutual convenience, by April 27, 2020.
