Author to discuss book about SNPs creation

Sue Eisenfeld wrote her 208-page book after years of hiking in Shenandoah National Park without knowing its history.
The author, who teaches at Johns Hopkins University, will speak at 2 p.m. Sept. 25 at the library branch in Marshall.
Sue Eisenfeld will discuss her book, Shenandoah: A Story of Betrayal and Conservation, at the Fauquier County Public Library in Marshall at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.

Ms. Eisenfeld’s work covers the often-forgotten history behind the creation of Shenandoah National Park.  Her years of off-trail hiking in the park led to discoveries that inspired her book.  In her presentation Sunday, she will share the stories and photographs that she gathered along the way.

"I decided I wanted to write the stories of what I have seen, heard, touched and discovered as a hiker in a de-peopled and -wilded park — a place that was once unfound and inhabited and is now ‘back to nature’ once again,” the author said.

The support of John and Linda Suter will make Sunday’s program possible.

Ms. Eisenfeld is a five-time fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She teaches at the Johns Hopkins University M.A. in Writing Program and the M.A. in Science Writing Program. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, The Washington Post, Gettysburg Review and other publications.
