Bibliophiles, rejoice!  The Regency Society of Virginia cordially invites you to join our book club.   Our Tuesday evening group will feature a variety of titles, either from or about the early 19th century.  All are welcome to participate regardless of membership status with the RSV, but you must register in order to get the login credentials to join us on Zoom for our discussion.

While reading the "assigned" section is, of course, encouraged to enhance the discussion, if you don't have an opportunity to complete the reading, you are still most welcome to listen in.

This week's discussion will feature:  The Richmond Theater Fire: Early America's First Great Disaster by Meredith Henne Baker.  Chapters 6-Epilogue.

Discover the tragic true story of the 1811 fire that not only shocked and horrified Virginians, but the entire nation.
