BOOK TALK AND SIGNING BY KATE CHENERY TWEEDY AND LEEANNE MEADOWS LADIN ON SATURDAY OCT 26 AT 2 PM
APPOMATTOX REGIONAL LIBRARY IN HOPEWELL VA
Together Kate and Leeanne will share the back story of where Virginia’s hometown hero Secretariat, also known as “America’s Super Horse,” came from. You’ll hear how Kate’s grandfather Christopher Chenery transformed his ancestral homeplace, The Meadow in Caroline County, into a renowned Thoroughbred farm, and how his daughter Penny took his dream to unprecedented heights, despite many obstacles. You’ll see a video of Secretariat’s most thrilling race, the Belmont, and learn how his incomparable legacy lives on today. You’ll even hear some behind-the-scenes stories about the movie.
If you love horses and history, you will enjoy this “tag-team” presentation by two authors who are dedicated to preserving this Virginia legend and legacy. For directions, see https://www.arls.org/
