Bill Sizemore at 5th Annual Brew-Ho-Ho

Join Bill Sizemore, author of "Uncle George and Me," at the 5th Annual Brew-Ho-Ho from 2p-5p on Sunday, Dec 16 at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery. This event is free and open to the public.

In "Uncle George and Me," author Bill Sizemore tells the story of his slave-owning Virginia ancestors, their slaves, and those slaves’ descendants—a story that lay buried by a century of denial and historical amnesia. Its threads run through the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, the struggle for civil rights, and the crippling legacy of slavery that still plagues the nation today. In microcosm, it is the story of Virginia and the South. In telling it, Sizemore hopes to advance an essential, if painful, national conversation about race.

Chop Suey Books and Hardywood will donate 10% of sales to the wonderful Virginia Children's Book Festival, a free yearly event each October in Farmville, VA. The Brew-Ho-Ho is free and open to the public.

Come and meet Richmond authors, and pick up some of their signed books!
