Cozy Fest: Raye Anderson + Sing a Song of Summer

Sometimes Cozy Fest readings mean doubling down on snowy or snuggly scenery, but we appreciate Raye Anderson’s approach: denial. She reads us a passage set at a summer barbeque from the most recent installment of her Roxanne Calloway series, Sing a Song of Summer (Signature Editions).

Now Reading on Cozy Fest: Raye Anderson and Sing a Song of Summer.
