Summer Reads

Summer is here and we’ve got a couple of great reading recommendations for you. Young readers will love Manatee’s Best Friend by Sylvia Liu, part of the National Book Festival’s Great Reads initiative. And be sure to check out My Monticello by Jocelyn Nicole Johnson, Virginia’s selection for Route1Reads.

And if you’re looking for some summer enrichment, be sure to check out some of our upcoming classes at our book arts studio.
