The adult literary program Literary Partners has a special, star-studded event launching tonight to mark Black History Month.
Fifteen high-profile authors will take turns reading Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon, over the course of three days, for your listening pleasure.
And did we mention it's free?
The first segment airs today, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern, with the next segments at 7 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday (all Eastern time zone).
There are literally too many celebrated authors to just highlight a few, so here are all participants: Hilton Als, Margaret Atwood, Brit Bennett, Edwidge Danticat, Jennifer Egan, Louise Erdrich, Yaa Gyasi, Tayari Jones, Robin Coste Lewis, Lorrie Moore, Tommy Orange, Jason Reynolds, Ocean Vuong, Jesmyn Ward, and Jacqueline Woodson.
