Summer is beginning to wind down but there are still a few precious weeks left. There is still time yet to swim, nap, dine outdoors, pick up fun, light reads. Prize-winning sportswriter Frank Deford wants to help with that last bit. On Tuesday, Deford will discuss his recently released “Bliss, Remembered” at 7 p.m. at Brookline Booksmith. The novel is a love story about a beautiful American swimmer named Sydney Stringfellow who falls in love with a handsome German during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Clearly this is a departure for Deford. But what is summer if not the perfect time for a break from what we regularly do?

Now, for the rest of the list, read on.
