We are excited to celebrate our 75th Anniversary of the Book & Author Event, the longest running event of its kind in the country, by welcoming a new lineup of authors. This year’s virtual Book & Author event will allow you to discover new authors and books while supporting the League and the Richmond community. It’s a win-win!
