Susan Recommends. . . .
Susan is our extraordinary children's book specialist here at Rakestraw Books.
If you have enjoyed the great selection of children's and teen books here at the shop or your kids have loved meeting a wonderful author -- both virtually and in-person -- that is due to her hard work.
Her passion for books, community, and -- most importantly -- getting books into the hands of kids is extraordinary. She is pictured here with a few of the great writers she brought to our community in the Fall of 2022. Plus she runs a couple book groups, tutors kids, has served as a CASA, and is always working to get books into the hands of underprivileged kids.
And, here's the thing, Susan also recommends wonderful books for grown-ups. Here are some of her current favorites. Happy Reading!
