We love reading. All kinds of books. Talking about taking our kids to this year’s National Book Festival at the Library of Congress got us thinking about authors we know. We realized that we’re lucky to count several book authors among our family and close friends. Maybe that’s why we like reading so much!
In their honor, as a virtual addition to the National Book Festival, here’s a shortlist of books written by our family and friends for you to consider adding to your reading list. And yes, we’ve read and recommend all of them!
