Saturday Good Reads
A family sees a former foster child on a school bus, and something small but surprising happens. A scene deleted from a novel. A daughter’s date with her dad. A book launch to help the homeless. Songlines that turn into dreams. A funeral party. An Indian temple at twilight. And, of course, the end of world (today’s the day). All this and so much more.
