Our friend and New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist recently visited us at HQ to curate a Trendsend collection for fall (which you can check out here!) She moved to NYC last winter and Trendsend made the transition a little easier, giving her more time to do what she loves—like cozying up with a good book! We’ve been on the hunt for some new reads now that the weather’s cooling down, so while she was here we made sure to snag some fall recommendations.🍂
