The Honorable Hugh Fairfax— a descendant of Thomas 6th Lord Fairfax, the Proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia and brother of Nicholas, 14th Lord Fairfax– will give a brief introduction to his new book, Fairfax of Virginia: The Forgotten Story of America’s Only Peerage. He will describe how the family came to America and why, what they did there over the 150 years they lived there, and why they finally returned to England. The talk will be accompanied by a visual presentation. A limited supply of books, signed by the author, will be available for purchase after the talk. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax. This program is part of the Fall for The Book festival line up featuring over a hundred authors in different venues across Northern Virginia from October 11-14.
