The Nov. 2 edition of Open Source RVA features an expansive interview with author Gigi Amateau. Her recent book, Come August, Come Freedom is a work of historical fiction that shines a light on the life of the slave Gabriel. We also speak to Brian Moran of the Democratic Party of Virginia and talk ukuleles with Richard Koch (of the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen) and musician Samson Trinh, who were two of the planners behind Ukefest.
