“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald
We can find community in stories, in conversation and in learning that we are not as isolated as we thought. Literature can be the heart of this connectedness- it’s what brings us together.
In a world that is changing at break-neck speed, where we carry out social distancing for the good of public health, how do we stay connected?
