Several recent author events in Des Moines — where Fussy is based — offered the option to join via Zoom for those who couldn’t (or didn’t want to) attend in person.

And given presenting author Jason Mott's anecdote about how physically exhausting book tours can be, I wouldn't blame any author for preferring to connect virtually, either.
