Summer Reading: Della Heiman of The Wynwood Yard’s Picks

July 27, 2016admin

Most of us have it in our heads that summer time is a period of relaxation and dusting off the old to-do lists here and there. That series you want to binge on Netflix, that movie you’ve been meaning to watch, you’ll totally get to it sometime this season. Well we don’t know about you, but thsi summer has been equally as busy as the rest of the year (no complaints here) so we’ve been looking for a literal escape. That’s why we’ve decided to give a revamp to those good ol’ reading lists you hurried to cliff note before fall. But instead of taking suggestions from the school board, we’re asking some hometown heroes and close friends of ours to clue us in on some of their all-time favorite reads.

By now you know how deeply we bow down to Della Heiman and all that she has accomplished at The Wynwood Yard (if you don’t, stop by for Craft Fair on August 6th!). We asked the startup queen what some of her most cherished cannons have been and where she brings them to unwind in Miami. Take a look:

“I’ve always been an avid reader and fall in love with books, so choosing is super tough. In another life I was once a voracious reader. Here are some of my all-time favorites…”

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

State of Wonder by Ann Patchett


Where does she take her cherished friends? Matheson Hammock Park, the beach by South Pointe Park, and the garden swing at The Wynwood Yard, of course 😉

I mean, who wouldn’t want to read there??
