  1. The National Book Festival (Library of Congress) will be starting on Friday. Online registration is free & very quick (your name & email). The festival information page is here.

  2. The National Book Festival (done by the Library of Congress) starts Friday. Online registration is free. They have an amazing round-up of authors, as well as many Q&A sessions slated with various departments at the Library of Congress. Festival information page is here. Wanted to post here because, if you don't want to pick your own schedule or are interested in a particular theme, they have a couple of themed topics. The theme I want to post here is "Hearing Black Voices". and

  8. Fandango is currently streaming some movies for free to spotlight Black cinema. "We believe movies can be a powerful tool for education and have worked with our studio partners to make these movies available to watch for free on FandangoNOW."
  9. Re: mentions of documentaries. I recommend watching Emanuel (about the Charleston church killings that is coming up on five years next week). ‘Emanuel’ documentary about Charleston church shooting now free to stream. (Looks like it will be free through June 16 -- next Tuesday.) This particular documentary's subject matter is especially important to me because Charleston holds a special place in my heart.
