      Eliza House Trist & Thomas Jefferson: A Friendship and a Woman’s Journal of Westward Exploration

      Join Virginia Humanities Research Fellow Karen A. Chase, an independent author and scholar, for a talk revealing the life and writings of Elizabeth House Trist, the often-overlooked American woman who traveled westward in 1783, two decades before the famed Lewis and Clark expedition. Friend to Thomas Jefferson, Trist is one of two women featured in Chase’s narrative nonfiction project entitled Eliza! Eliza! Chase is the author of Carrying Independence, a historical novel about the signing of the Declaration of Independence. For more information, contact emma.ito@lva.virginia.gov or 804.692.3726.
