Connie Lapallo, an author and researcher, will present “Telling Their Story: Jamestown’s First Women and Children” in the Wilson County Public Library’s assembly room at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30.
Lapallo first began researching her family tree at age 11 and was successfully published at 16.
She has published three historically accurate novels about these women and children, who first endured a hurricane at sea and then were thrust into the “Starving Time.” She will discuss the courageous first Colonists as well as give pointers for writing about one’s own ancestors.
Her novels, “Dark Enough to See the Stars in a Jamestown Sky,” “When the Moon Has No More Silver,” and “The Sun is But A Morning Star” will be available for sale after the program.
The program is sponsored by the Wilson County Genealogical Society in partnership with the Wilson County Public Library and is open to all. For more information about the author visit www.connielapallo.com.
