    J. Thomas Brown will read from his novel, The Land of Three Houses, which is inspired by true events. His boyhood home in the Tohickon Valley, rich in history, was taken by eminent domain and demolished. The entire Tohickon Valley, along with farms, homes, mills, and settlers’ graves, was denuded and flooded to create Nockamixon State Park and Lake Nockamixon. Much of the story is woven around three strong women of the 1790s, including Madam Germaine de Staèl, an Enlightenment thinker and salonnière whose pen and wit caused Napoleon to ban her from Paris. The reading will be at the Barnes & Noble at Chesterfield Towne Center in Midlothian, VA on March 28, 2020 at 3:00pm.
