Beth Escott Newcomer’s story, Wintering Bird, is about a bird and about a garden. But of course, it’s about so much more than that. She did her guerrilla reading in the greenhouse at Serra Gardens Landscape Succulents.
Newcomer’s work appeared on the New Short Fiction stage as one of their Emerging Voices in 2010. If you like what you see here, you can read another of her stories, Coyotes Howl in Fallbrook, on the Excuse Me, I’m Writing blog.
