The Coronavirus crisis of 2020 has forced us to social distance, but what better time to close the distance between authors and readers? Inspired by the desire to promote virtual book chats, reduce social isolation, raise money for independent bookstores and help authors (especially those whose recent releases coincided with cancellation of traditional bookstore events) we banded together in April to bring you, the reader, this selective list of authors available for digital events now through summer.
HOW IT WORKS: Authors listed below have agreed to visit book clubs via Zoom or other digital means, though final availability must be worked out independently by each club and each author. We recommend you incorporate an informal Q&A of 30-45" as just one feature of your book club discussion. Ordering books from Bookshop helps indie bookstores thrive but is not necessary for usage of the list. New authors will be added to our original baker's dozen so check back to look for new suggestions!
PURCHASES FROM THIS PAGE generate contributions to indie bookstores, with a further ten percent donation going to the Center for Disease Philanthropy Covid-19 Respond Fund.
