Program Description

Event Details

COVID-19 has revolutionized the way we live, work, and interact with each other. On August 16, join FVRLibraries for a special discussion with five of the authors of Alone Together: Love, Grief & Comfort in the Time of COVID-19, winner of the 2021 Washington State Book Awards. This collection of essays, poems, and interviews was compiled at the beginning of the pandemic to serve as a lifeline during a stressful time of uncertainty and isolation.

The author panel discussion will feature Claudia Castro Luna, Jennifer Haupt, Pam Houston, Major Jackson, and Sonora Jha and be moderated by Nancy Pearl. Each author will read from their work and join us in the conversation. We'll also be hosting discussions about the book at libraries around our district. Complimentary books will be available at FVRLibraries locations in July, while supplies last.

This virtual event will be live streamed on our YouTube channel and no registration is required.

Revolutionary Reads is an annual community reading and event series from Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries to engage readers, spark dialogue, and inspire ideas that just might change the world. The program is made possible through the generous support of Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation and branches’ Friends of the Library groups.
