It's summertime again, and we are closing a chapter of this pandemic. As you head off to visit family and friends, possibly for the first time in over a year, you might need a good book to travel with- something to take your mind off of the anticipation. You're in luck! We have been social distancing for a year, and we like to read even when there are other things to do. These staff picks from the Science and Engineering Resource Group offer the perfect distraction.
