As our world is transformed by the coronavirus pandemic, writers offer a powerful antidote to the fearful confines of isolation: a window onto lives and corners of the world beyond our own. Join us on YouTube Live for a free virtual talk with contributing authors from And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again, a digital anthology of literary dispatches from life during the pandemic.
And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again takes its title from the last line of Dante’s Inferno, when the poet and his guide emerge from hell to once again behold the beauty of the heavens. In that spirit, the stories, essays, poems, and artwork in this collection detail the harrowing experiences of life in the pandemic, while pointing toward a less isolated future.
Net proceeds from And We Came Outside and Saw the Stars Again will go to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, which helps the passionate booksellers get back on their feet after the lockdown. Purchase the digital anthology from Restless Books directly here.Buy tickets/get more info now
