The Spokesman-Review’s annual short-fiction series. For 10 weeks, some of Spokane’s best writers will share new, original works of short fiction based on a central theme. In recent years, writers have taken us on a road trip, camping in the woods, diving into the lake and floating down the river. For this sixth edition of Summer Stories, we’ve decided to go back to where it started: the past.
The Summer of ’69, one of the most significant years of the late 20th century will be explored by Spokane authors: Shawn Vestal, Kris Dinnison, Stephanie Oakes, Megan Rowe, Sharma Shields, Chris Crutcher, Sherry Jones, Sarah Hulse, Thom Caraway and Jess Walter.
