Reston Historic Trust Chair Shelley Mastran will talk about the role of real estate speculation and the evolution of the Tysons landscape, as dairy farms, orchards, and gravel pits became shopping centers and high-tech office buildings.

The free program is at 7 p.m. at Reston Community Center at Lake Anne.
