The long and fascinating history of Fairmount Park is hitting bookshelves with “City in a Park.”

Written by freelance writer James McClelland and Temple University professor and author Lynn Miller, the book features more than 150 photos chronicling the 200-year-old network of parks that originated in the 19th century as a civic effort to provide a clean water supply to Philadelphia.

Annie Liontas, a local author, has a lot going on right now.

Her debut novel, “Let Me Explain You,” was released in July; she’s busy at her day job as a curriculum specialist at Philadelphia Futures; and she’s preparing for the release of an anthology she edited about writers and their mentors called “A Manner of Being.”
