"All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value."
—Carl Sagan (b. 1934) American astronomer noted for research for extraterrestrial life

"Rappahannock" - The Movie
Rappahannock River Movie Monday at the Library
Monday, May 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Deltaville Branch Library you have a chance
to see the best movie ever made about the Rappahannock. Simply entitled “Rappahannock”,
the film “is at once a history lesson, a love letter, a celebration, and a
sobering but ultimately optimistic tale,” according to John Tippett, former
Executive Director of Friends of the Rappahannock. The documentary was directed
and produced by Oscar-nominated Bayley Silleck for Friends of the Rappahannock.
It includes information on the history and the health of the River using high
definition aerial and underwater photography, historic photographs and maps,
and interviews with people who value the river and all it has to offer us.
The film will be introduced by Richard Moncure, the current Tidal River Steward
for FOR. He is currently involved in community education and is leading a
number of restoration projects relating to living shorelines and oyster reefs.
A licensed waterman, Richard has spent a lifetime on the Northern Neck and
Middle Peninsula. You may remember him as the former owner of the Seafood
Market at The Happy Clam. He truly is a man who understands the value of the
Rappahannock River from “fisherman to fork.” You're sure to learn from and enjoy "Rappahannock."
