Meet the Author – M.S. Marangione

Across the Blue Ridge Mountains book cover

Thursday, July 13

5 p.m.

Laurel Ridge Community College – Luray-Page County Center


The inspiration for Laurel Ridge Professor Margaret “Maggie” Marangione’s first novel is all around her. “Across the Blue Ridge Mountains” tells the story of Mary, a young woman who, after leaving her abusive mother, eventually ends up with a mountain family in Elkton. There, she is healed and empowered, but faces adversity when the federal government begins removing families from their homes in order to create Shenandoah National Park.

Professor Marangione was inspired to pen the story after the voice of Mary came to her one winter morning. She will be reading from her book, which was published last August, and taking questions. “Across the Blue Ridge Mountains” is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
