Jim Junot, a Richmond journalist, recently started a youtube channel focusing on local history. He interviewed me about the Richmond Theater fire book while I was in town to give a talk at the Library of Virginia. You can watch the interview here–and learn about the details and impact of the Richmond Theater fire of 1811 in only 6 minutes and 33 seconds!
So now we have an answer to the question: how can you get a short briefing about the Richmond Theater fire if you aren’t actually that “into” reading? If you ARE the reading type, however, my book can be ordered here!
