The UVA Club of Tidewater invites you to attend the exciting presentation of “Mr. Jefferson’s Telescope: A History of the University of Virginia in 100 Objects” The author Brendan Wolfe will discuss the book, and history of the University.
This writing is a warts-and-all account that searches for meaning in everything from a walking stick to a Barbie doll. What he finds, as UVA teeters on the edge of century number three, is a school ripe for reinvention. Wolfe is the editor of Encyclopedia Virginia at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and the author of Finding Bix: The Life and Afterlife of a Jazz Legend (2017).
There will be light appetizers and drink available. We look forward to seeing you there!
