Veep’s Timothy Simons on his favorite bookstore, Hello Hello Books in Rockland.
On the cover: Biscay Pond, Pemaquid Peninsula, by Cara Dolan.
South Portland photographer Cara Dolan shot this month’s cover photo a couple of summers back, at the family camp on Biscay Pond, on the Pemaquid Peninsula. It’s a tableau many readers will recognize, with Dolan’s then-11-year-old son, Sid, sitting alongside the family’s then-6-month-old English setter, Sunny, just drinking in the companionship and the summer day. “We found the entire experience of ‘puppydom’ to be pretty chaotic,” Dolan says, “but this kind of boy-and-his-dog moment was exactly what I had envisioned and hoped for when we first got her.” Two years later, Dolan says, the family still hasn’t convinced Sunny to jump off the dock.
