Cedar Creek Author, Rick Britton, and the Michie Tavern Firesides

Thursdays in August – 4 p.m. – “ALBEMARLE COUNTY IN THE CIVIL WAR!” - OLLI at U.Va. in Partnership with Michie Tavern is offering a special Summer Session presented by award-winning Civil War historian Rick Britton entitled “Albemarle County in the Civil War!” Albemarle County supported the Confederacy in several significant ways—war materiel was produced for the army; medical care was provided on a massive scale; and, of course, thousands of local men and boys fought, bled, and died. One locally raised scrapper became the war’s most famous partisan leader. And the locally raised infantry regiment, the 19th Virginia, became one of Robert E. Lee’s most steadfast units. During Albemarle’s one combat—when future Indian-fighter George Armstrong Custer paid an unwelcome visit—the plucky Southern defenders used every trick in the book to turn the tide.
Join us as we learn about “Albemarle County in the Civil War!”
• Aug. 9 – Blood & Treasure: Albemarle County’s Confederate War Effort
• Aug. 16 – Albemarle Boys in Pickett’s Charge
• Aug. 23 – John Singleton Mosby: Guerilla Fighter Extraordinaire
• Aug. 30 – The “Battle” of Rio Hill: George Armstrong Custer Comes A-Callin’
The events begin at 4 p.m. Lectures begin promptly at 4:30. Q&A follows until 5:30. The $16.00 fee for each includes the lecture, cheese, two glasses of wine, a book-signing, and a complimentary tour of historic Michie Tavern. Sign up today! Go to OLLI’s online registration system: https://olliuvaregistration.org/Home/Index/Outings NOTE: You must be an OLLI member for the fall 2016 semester to participate in this special Summer Session.

From Cedar Creek Publishing author, Andy Straka - Kindle deal when you purchase the print version of RECORD OF WRONGS from Amazon. #Mystery #Thriller
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Freed from prison when a new round of DNA testing casts reasonable doubt on his guilt, Quentin Price is about to confront a woman from his past who will make him an offer difficult to refuse: the chance to help solve the crime that put him behind bars. There is only one problem. What if Quentin is guilty? And, what if the woman happens to be his most improbable ally of all? In a thriller that crackles with a palpable sense of loss, Price, a former college security guard, balks when asked to join in a search for the real killer by the mother of the white coed he was convicted of raping and murdering. "Shamus Award winner Andy Straka is a heavily under-rated author unknown to many readers. If he keeps producing books like RECORD OF WRONGS he will be on top sooner rather than later. He is that good." --Angel L. Soto (I Love a Mystery Reviews) "Atmosphere, vivid setting . . . relentless tension, and characters you feel in your bones . . . a compulsively readable, gripping thriller." --Julia Spencer-Fleming "Highly recommended. I dare you to tell me I’m wrong." --Michael Connelly
