Your Call: What's on your summer reading list?

On the May 31st edition of Your Call, we'll ask Copperfield Books' Sheryl Cotleur and Green Apple Books’ Kevin Hunsanger to share their recommendations for summer reading. What are your favorite books? What are some of the most popular book for the summer? And what are you reading now? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
