Helen Cripe, who wrote The Book on Jefferson and all things music, has been hanging out with us at the library for the last month, which has been pretty cool. She's been working on re-configuring her magnum opus into the next Monticello Monograph. (Personally, I've been getting a big kick out of seeing the look on people's faces when they come in looking for Helen's book and I get to say, "oh hey, she's sitting right over there!") Before she bids us farewell, she'll be giving us a lecture (on Jefferson and music, of course). Please do note that this talk was originally scheduled for today, but has been rescheduled for Thursday, January 29th. Tea at 3:30, talk from Helen at 4:00pm. It's free and open to the public.
