Local author Paula Young Lee’s nonfiction story about Wellesley’s Morses Pond, titled “Sonny’s Wall,” appears in a new anthology of writings focused on the topic of legacy. The last time we mentioned Lee, she had published a book called “Deer Hunting in Paris.”
Lee says the story “is about a neighbor who hand-built a stone wall, creating a lasting thing of beauty out of rubble. It is also a story about the kinds of walls people build around themselves in order to prevent their true selves from being known.”
The new Legacy anthology, published by Velvet Morning Press, grew out of a Book Wheel blog project in which various NY Times and award-winning authors reviewed books of their own choosing on 30 different blogs.
All profits from the anthology go to Paws for Reading, a not-for-profit that encourages young children to read aloud to pets.
