Build your summer reading list

Did you miss last week’s “What’s everyone reading?” Community Zoom event but would like some suggestions for building your summer reading list? Here are some of the books that were discussed by Ward Tefft of Chop Suey Books, VCU Libraries staff, and Richmond community members. Titles include new releases by VCU alumni, 14th century pandemic reading, contemporary graphic novels, non-fiction, locally-based historical fiction, and cozy mysteries. Take a look at this list and let us know what you’ve been reading!
