Let’s hear it one more time for the wonderful artists who are regrouping and rallying to bring us in-home entertainment during our lockdowns!

The New York Times has a long list of virtual National Poetry Month activities, from open mics to readings to Twitter challenges and more.

And this Saturday, BookCon is hosting a virtual Read-a-Thon, not just to keep us amused at home but also to benefit bookstore workers affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

From noon to 8 p.m. Eastern time, authors including Laurie Halse Anderson and Ransom Riggs will do fifteen-minute readings on BookCon’s Facebook page, during which viewers are encouraged to donate to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation.

BookCon has also launched a virtual book-tour series.

Read more about the virtual Read-a-Thon, including the full author lineup, on the BookCon website.
