The official start of summer is this month.  Maybe Nine Years Under: Coming of Age in an Inner City Funeral Home should be on your summer reading list?

31-year-old Baltimore writer Sheri Booker turned grief over the loss of her beloved Aunt into employment at a West Baltimore funeral home and the kernal of her writing career.  Sheri’s work and writing helped her move through her grief journey.  She experiences both the compassion of her coworkers as well as the sometimes violent reactions mourners have to death and grief.  Click on the below link for Sheri’s interview with the Baltimore Sun.
