Great Gift Book Ideas by Local Richmond Authors

It’s the giving season of the year for most and what’s better than giving books to children? And when those books are written by local Richmond authors, that’s even better! We just love all of the incredible books that are being published by our friends and neighbors. As the holidays approach, consider purchasing one or two of these books to support the local authors and provide your child(ren) with a gift that last for years.
