Good Jibes Episode #71: A Christmas Tale — “Bay Is Salt” (Verbatim)

We hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s stories from the magazine. As this is our last Good Jibes for the year, and it is Christmas week, we decided to tell you a Christmas tale as it appeared in the pages of Latitude 38 in December 1977. This week’s host, Monica Grant, reads a special Christmas tale, “Bay Is Salt.”
