Ronda Rich’s new book a compendium of early columns
Gainesville author celebrating 15 years of telling Southern stories
Ronda Rich
Gainesville native Ronda Rich has written more than 900 columns for newspapers in the past 15 years, or hundreds of thousands of words at an average of five columns a week. “What I’ve discovered is that people like to remember — they don’t like to be reminded in today’s world,” Rich said about her writing. “That’s what I set out every week to do — is to give my readers 15 minutes of remembering, not being reminded.”
