The Tour Begins

 

Our screening of The Angel of Marye’s Heights at Liberty University is coming up this weekend (Sat. Sept. 18), and we are preparing for what looks to be an incredible experience. We would love to see you there. Here’s the latest info:

The folks at Liberty University are treating us like kings and we will be staying at Montview (Carter Glass Mansion) for the weekend. This beautiful estate was Rev. Jerry Falwell’s office and is now the site of his grave. There will be plenty of photos and videos to share once we return. Then it’s off to the University of Mary Washington the following weekend where I will be presenting the film and a short speech followed by a group tour of Brompton courtesy of the UMW folks.

Keep up with our schedule over on the Screening Dates section of our website. We encourage you to come out and support both our film and these causes.
