It’s been a stressful and uncertain time for all of us. I hope you, your families, and your friends are doing well and staying safe.
At times like these, it is especially important to check in and manage our physical and mental health. Since most of us (e.g. non-essential workers) are quarantined at home until further notice, I wanted to round up some fun virtual bookish events that are happening to help keep our spirits up. It helps to have something to look forward to!
This list is compromised of large community events, not book launches or author chats. However, I also share a lot of small events on my Twitter so check it out if you’re interested. #DVpit also has a list of virtual events featuring marginalized authors and illustrators that I highly recommend!
I’ll be updating this page with events and details as I learn about them. If you know of any I miss, please comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the information so I can add it.
Let me know in the comments if you’ll be joining for any of these events.
