Many of us have the good fortune to have had a father, grandfather or other father figure who helped shape the person we have become. While one day is certainly not enough to honor and remember these men, we celebrate Fathers’ Day on Sunday, June 19th. From biography and poetry to fiction and diaries, these four selections showcase different genres to emphasize the variety of relationships that may connect us with our own role model, counselor or real life hero. Here are four works that speak to the significant impact provided by father figures that can continue long after the man himself is gone from this earth.
