What Your Kids (and You) Should Read This Summer, by Your Favorite Authors

15 Puget Sound literary luminaries develop the only summer book list you may ever need

Literary luminaries

Ah, summer. Just the word evokes images of hammocks, beach chairs, and — at least in our literary corner of the country — stacks of books. Unfortunately, as parents, the endeavor of encouraging kids to do their summer reading (and to try to gently nudge them into worthwhile books) can interrupt our own blissed-out reading time. 

So here's the strategy: We asked some of our favorite literary lumaries from our bookish region, from Seattle City Librarian Marcellus Turner to Poser author Claire Dederer, to get opinionated their top picks for summer reads for kids and adults, from classics that should be rediscovered to wonderful new releases. Slip a stack of these by your kids' bedside and that hammock time might be easier to find than you thought.
