Each year, the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library invites all book lovers to participate in the Same Page Community Read, providing local residents with the opportunity to read and discuss a single book within their community by an author appearing at the Virginia Festival of the Book.

The 2024 Virginia Festival of the Book is thrilled to host Rachel Beanland, who talks about her novel, Florence Adler Swims Forever. One fateful 1930s summer begins with a tragedy, sweeping three generations of the Adler family into a riptide of heartbreak and secrets in a shimmering story of the connections that bind–and break.
