FEATURE | SUMMER READING
“Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,” wrote William Shakespeare in Sonnet 18. His comment on the intensity of summer is a theme taken up by our Bay Area bards this month as they describe a near-drowning, an awkward houseguest, teenagers on vert ramps, poignant slices of lemon meringue pie and so much more. Featuring Julia Bourland Chambers, Veronica Chater, Jill Koenigsdorf, Toni Martin, Linda Joy Myers, Laralynn Weiss Rapoza, Christine Schoefer, Laura Schumaker and Sarah Lavender Smith.
