Add these books to your summer must-read list.

 

For the Adventurer:
In his enCYCLEpedia, Richard Fox takes us on a journey through Southern California’s — and the Coachella Valley’s — most leisurely and scenic summer bike rides.  Available online at www.bigearthpublishing.com

For the Culture Connoisseur:

Those Glamorous Gabors, Darwin Porter’s sizzling biography, delves into the dirty details of these mid–20th–century bombshells — many of whom gallivanted in Palm Springs. Available at Greetings, Palm Springs.
