The following stories were originally published in the July 24, 2019, issue of U.S. 1 Newspaper.
Editor’s note: It’s that time of year again: the publication of U.S. 1’s annual Summer Fiction issue means that readers have plenty of short stories and poems to fill their dishes while U.S. 1 takes its annual summer skip week. There will be no paper on Wednesday, July 31; regular weekly publication will resume Wednesday, August 7.
If you’re waiting to do your reading until the annual Summer Fiction reception, mark your calendars for Wednesday, August 21, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the D&R Greenway Land Trust, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton.
