In the old Southern town of Lexington, Virginia, letters to the editor stretch from a recent News-Gazette back to 1804. This rich material was turned into a very successful play by Dr. Kimberly Jew that premiered at a local theater. The book contains hundreds of letters, along with the original script of the play. Cumming’s wrote, “The voices of the Valley speak again, glints of gold out of the creek bed of Time.”
The design of the book places letters of like subjects, separated by decades and sometimes centuries, on the same page providing the reader a view of how some things just don’t change.
The Lexington Letters: Two Centuries of Water Under the Bridge was compiled by Washington and Lee university students and edited by journalism professor Doug Cumming.
