Reston Library to Host Book Talk on Charlottesville and Democracy

Former Charlottesville Mayor, Michael Signer, will discuss the violence and aftermath of the infamous “Unite the Right” rally and his upcoming book “Cry Havoc: Charlottesville and American Democracy Under Siege” next week in Reston.

On March 19, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Signer will be at the Reston Regional Library (11925 Bowman Towne Drive), giving a free talk for those interested in his first-person narrative of violence, according to the event description.

The book dives into the “terror and mayhem of the August 2017,” the event page said.

“Cry Havoc: Charlottesville and American Democracy Under Siege” is available for purchase beginning tomorrow (March 19). Readers can preorder online or visit Scrawl Books (11911 Freedom Drive) to pick up a copy tomorrow.

Several other publications have written about the aftermath of the Charlottesville violence in the past, but this in-depth look will explore the topic from a new perspective.
