Evening with an Expert – Our Sisters

The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is pleased to announce the return of its lecture series, Evening with an Expert. This year’s program, Our Sisters, will focus on Fredericksburg’s five sister cities: Frejus, France, Princes Town, Ghana, Schwetzingen, Germany, Este, Italy, and Kathmandu, Nepal.


Please join FAM staff as we welcome representatives from each Sister City association for a panel discussion. This discussion, facilitated by Cedric Rucker, UMW’s Associate Vice President & Dean of Student Life, will highlight each Sister City’s unique offerings and provide insight into Fredericksburg’s global connections. From international academic exchanges to local educational events, this program will bring to life the work of our local Sister City associations and work to build broader connections!


This FREE event will take place on Thursday, November 4th from 7 – 8:30 pm at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library in the newly renovated theater, 1201 Caroline Street. As we continue to work to keep our community safe, attendees are required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, and maintain social distancing.


For more information, please either contact Theresa Cramer at tcramer@famcc.org. The FAM collects, researches, interprets, teaches, and preserves the history, heritage, and culture of the Fredericksburg region. We serve a diverse community through a commitment to inclusion, integrity, credibility, and relevance. We will facilitate an understanding and appreciation of how the acts of those who preceded us have shaped this community and the nation at large—providing both lessons and inspiration as we work together to forge a greater community.
