Filmed in 2015, the light-hearted conversation between the publisher and the noted author of biographer of World War I poets is being held to celebrate Virginia’s 139th birthday as well as to publicize the on-going campaign to honor her with a statue.

The online event runs from 2 to 2:50 p.m. EST and you can purchase a ticket for £3.83 on Eventbrite.
