Rappahannock Reads: Made by Hand

Rappahannock Reads - Made by Hand by Mark Frauenfelder


The Fredericksburg area is a community of Makers, people collaborating and creating together, following their passions, and for just plain fun!

On the afternoon of Saturday, September 14, 2013, the Central Rappahannock Regional Library celebrated this creative spirit at Rappahannock Reads: MADE BY HAND at the England Run Library.
