William Shakespeare’s masterful play set in Verona, Italy is known the world over for the powerful duel between the overwhelming emotions that rule the human soul: love and hatred. Propelled by a series of events that ultimately consume the storyline’s two young lovers – Juliet Capulet and the son of her family’s sworn enemy, Romeo Montague – the bard’s tragic tale has proved fertile ground for artists of all trades for centuries.
Join LeeAnne Ball, Historian and founder of Spirited History, as she explores the fascinating history and symbolism that surrounds love tokens.
Photos from Mrs. Balls collection will be shown during the lecture as well as pieces from her personal collection that date back to the 15th century. Each participant will have their own opportunity to make their own love token to keep or share with someone special. Included in the event is a brief paranormal tour and audio session. During this session poetry and music will be utilized in hopes of connecting with the historic spirits at Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown. Psychic David Allen Brown will be on hand as well as master violinist David Gardner. Proceeds are donated to Preservation Virginia.
