Book signing to be held at Fenwick Street Books located just off-the-square on Fenwick St. in beautiful, downtown historic Leonardtown from noon to 4 pm.
Do your pandemic pastimes spark joy? Here’s one that will!: purchase your very own signed copy of Whispers From the Colonial Past: A Self-Guided Walking Tour for Visitors to Historic St. Mary’s City by Ellynne Brice Davis, illustrated by Joyce Judd.
This spiral-bound book was designed to be carried as a reference as you walk the beautiful trails of Maryland’s first capital. Every site has been meticulously researched and gloriously illustrated so that you will be able to immerse yourself in the story of the founding of Maryland’s first colony. Sample points of interest include: The Maryland Dove, the three lead coffins inside the Reconstructed 1667 Catholic Chapel, the Godiah Spray Plantation, the Woodland Indian Hamlet, Trinity Church and its adjacent graveyard, the Slave Quarters at the Inn at Brome-Howard, and the almost-hidden stones that still mark the outline of the original 1676 State House.
A fold-out map in the back of the book indicates not only each stop on the trail but also the locations of restrooms, water fountains, parking lots, and picnic tables.
Come on out to meet the author and the illustrator and be on your way to communing with nature while tracing the fascinating history of the colonial settlement where the great state of Maryland began.
