Flowers in full bloom, warm breezes, brilliant sunlight — nature offers us the flawless qualities of summer. And this summer, especially, we are eager to leave behind the ever-present blue light of our computer screens for the blue skies of New England’s shortest season. With vaccinations up and pandemic restrictions easing, we summer readers are ready to take our novels out for a day on the beach, explore literary adventures under the shade of a tree, or venture back into the nearest public library. And three of our local librarians are here with 2021’s best stories — from fantasy worlds to real-life social dilemmas — it’s our annual summer reading special.

Susannah Borysthen-Tkacz — senior librarian at the Cambridge Public Library
Robin Brenner — teen librarian at the Public Library of Brookline
Veronica Koven-Matasy — reader services specialist at the Boston Public Library
