Celebrating The City In ‘Our Boston’
Six months ago today, two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, leaving three people dead and more than 260 were injured. To mark that day and honor the city, a new collection of stories is out today. It’s called Our Boston: Writers Celebrate the City They Love.
36 writers contributed pieces, including novelist Dennis Lehane, Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen, and WBUR’s very own Bill Littlefield. Writer and Boston native George Howe Colt’s story “Getting Over Boston” tells of a complicated relationship with the city — one that ultimately keeps drawing him back.
