Democracy Vineyards welcomes author James Thompson to its next Voices of Democracy on Sunday, April 19 February 21 2015

Democracy Vineyards is pleased to welcome author James Thompson to its next Voices of Democracy: After Hours on Sunday, April 19 at 5:30 pm. Mr. Thompson is a philosophy graduate of the University of Virginia who has spent many years exploring the multiple facets of Thomas Jefferson’s outlook on life and politics. Having written extensively on the third President, he will share some thoughts on how Jefferson used wine in his self-transformation into a Renaissance man.  He has written six books, including Beyond the Veil of Reason – Thomas Jefferson's Early Political Initiative (2005), Thomas Jefferson’s Enlightenment – Paris 1785 (2014), Thomas Jefferson’s Enlightenment – Background Notes (2015), and The First Revolutions in the Minds of the People (2015). His newest project, George Washington’s Mulatto Man – Who was Billy Lee? will be published this fall.


Democracy Vineyards is located at 585 Mountain Cove Road, Lovingston, VA on Rt. 718, just north of the village of Lovingston. There is a $5/pp admission which includes a glass of wine and, because seating is limited, reservations are recommended. For further information, call 434-263-8463.
