Happy Monday everyone! I’m taking part in Manic Monday, a weekly meme hosted by Bianca @ Always Bring Books.

I hope everyone’s week is starting well. My Monday morning consisted of me baking Zucchini Bread. I’m really putting my baking skills to use during these ‘Indoor Days’!

Manic Monday: What I’m Reading

Alone Together: Love, Grief and Comfort In the Time of COVID-19 by Jennifer Haupt
ALONE TOGETHER: Love, Grief, and Comfort During the Time of COVID-19 is a collection of essays, poems, and interviews to serve as a lifeline for negotiating how to connect and thrive during this stressful time of isolation as well as a historical perspective that will remain relevant for years to come. All contributing authors and business partners are donating their share to The Book Industry Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization that coordinates charitable programs to strengthen the bookselling community.

The roster of diverse voices includes Faith Adiele, Kwame Alexander, Jenna Blum, Andre Dubus III, Jamie Ford, Nikki Giovanni, Pam Houston, Jean Kwok, Major Jackson, Devi S. Laskar, Caroline Leavitt, Ada Limón, Dani Shapiro, David Sheff, Garth Stein, Luis Alberto Urrea, Steve Yarbrough, and Lidia Yuknavitch.

ALONE TOGETHER is divided into five sections: What Now?, Grieve, Comfort, Connect, And Don’t Stop. The overarching theme is how this age of isolation and uncertainty is changing us as individuals and a society.

I received Alone Together through NetGalley and Central Avenue Publishing. This anthology addresses the Covid-19 pandemic through many voices in the artistic world.
