As I write this column, it’s cool and rainy outside, but the Sunday forecast is very nice, so I hope everyone is enjoying Father’s Day and the start of summer.
I want to offer a reading list in honor of this special day for dads, and I hope that readers will find one or more of the titles enjoyable reads. For a change, I decided to provide publisher annotations instead of my personal reviews. A different voice can offer unique perspectives even in brief descriptions, and after all, variety is the spice of life, or in this case — of reading.
Happy Father’s Day!
