Girls of Summer
This celebration of amazing books for amazing girls was begun by authors Meg Medina and Gigi Amateau. After several years in Richmond, the party came to Charlottesville in 2015 thanks to the efforts and sponsorship of the Junior League of Charlottesville. All books on the lists from the Charlottesville events are available at JMRL.
