Long Road to Paris at the Jefferson

Authors and adventurers, Ed and Janet Howle, will be in Charlottesville on September 21 at the Jefferson Theater to present highlights of their drive west across the U.S., Asia and Europe covering 14,000 miles, and fictionalized in their novel The Long Road to Paris.

Their entry in this world race: a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle, which will be showcased outside the theater. The fast-paced novel includes international espionage, suspense, betrayal and a dangerous liaison between the car’s driver and his secretive, feisty navigator.

The event, sponsored by New Dominion Book Shop, begins at 7pm
