Those attending the screening at the United States Capitol Tuesday evening will not only learn more about West Virginia, but will be able to sample some of its culinary treats. On Monday the Shepherdstown Sweet Shop Bakery was assembling this edible mosaic of the West Virginia state seal for the event. Owner Pam Berry said each square in the design was attached to the top of a chocolate brownie piece, making about 370 petit fours, or bite size treats.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is hosting a screening of Hollow, the Peabody Award winning documentary, followed by a discussion with Director Elaine McMillion Sheldon at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center from 6-8 p.m. The event is open to the public but a RSVP is requested at HollowEvent@manchin.senate.gov
