I participated as a vendor at the Belle Grove Spirits festival. Belle Grove is the birthplace of President James Madison. It was built in 1791 on the banks of the Rappahannock River. It’s a beautiful place. My books weren’t available in time for the festival, but I was able to bring my homemade crafts, and provide kids a craft to participate in. Even a few adults enjoyed the fun.
