The anthology, a diverse collection of humorous and emotional essays, includes: An essay about how the divorce of a young girl’s parents led to a special bond with her dad and the great outdoors. A fictional story about a lonely teenager who spends an idyllic summer on Grandma’s farm. What could possibly happen? A funny essay about a woman who channels Aunt Bee while coping with young neighbors in a contemporary condo complex.
The scheduled readers for this evening are: Jamie Caulley, Kathy Eaton, Dave King, Catherine Magdalena, Sarah Retzer, and Mark Robben.
