Erby, associate curator at Mount Vernon, who examines Washington’s critical role in developing Mount Vernon’s landscape. Erby, a native of Lunenburg County and son of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Erby of Victoria, will discuss and sign copies of the book on Sunday, April 10, at a meeting of the Lunenburg County Historical Society at 2 p.m. at the Ripberger Public Library in Kenbridge. The public is invited.
