Community Conversation - Discussing Monroe Park

901 views

Published on

Join us as we collaborate with Richmond Magazine, TMI Consulting Inc., the Future of Richmond's Past and local restaurants to offer our next series of "Community Conversations." Each month we will discuss a locale in the city spanning Shockoe Bottom to the Boulevard. This month’s featured panelist, Harry Kollatz, Jr., a senior writer with Richmond Magazine and author of two books on Richmond history: Richmond Ragtime and True Richmond Stories, will join attendants for a conversation about Monroe Park.

This will be the fourth iteration of the "Community Conversations" series. The purpose of the series is to engage the community in a dialogue about the region’s past and how that past can positively shape our collective future. The more people that join in the conversation, the more productive our efforts become, and the easier it will be for everyone to see ourselves in the history of the region.

Free and open to the public.
For information, call (804) 649-0711 ext. 322
