If you missed Sundays at Two with Hope Porter and Lou Emerson, the program is now available on-demand.

Hope Porter, a leader in land conservation in Fauquier County and Virginia, spoke on July 16 with veteran journalist and editor Lou Emerson about her nearly 60 years as an “accidental activist.”

In the 1950s, the threat of unchecked development from the greater Washington area spreading into an unprotected Fauquier County propelled Porter to defend the county’s open land. She has been honored for her passion and dedication to sensible land use and success in preserving the county’s quality of life. Named the Citizen of the Decade by the Fauquier Times-Democrat in 1980, Porter is one of the most powerful people in the county and yet has never held public office.

Lou Emerson is an entrepreneurial journalist who launched the Fauquier Citizen and Fauquier Now and several niche publications and websites. An experienced consultant, he is a frequent lecturer and seminar leader for state press associations, colleges and other groups.

Sundays at Two brings together distinguished writers, artists, and scholars for conversations about their work and lives.

Mark your calendar for the next Sunday at Two, as Major Warner, Superintendent, Fauquier County Public Schools and lifelong Fauquier County resident, talks with Lou Emerson, veteran journalist and editor. Sunday, October 15, 2-3 p.m. at the John Barton Payne Bldg., 2 Courthouse Square, Warrenton.
