Speaking of authors, there's a calendar of mg release dates at Middle Grade Book Village; lots of folks have books coming out right in the middle of the current crisis, which is hard on them,, so do consider their books in your emergency book buying (if applicable).  Several enticing MG fantasy books (two I'm looking at myself that I hadn't heard of elsewhere are Silverworld, by Diana Abu-Jaber and On These Magic Shores, by Yamile S. Mendez, but do check out the whole list of great books!).  If you see any that are missing, let the MG Book Village folks know (I just emailed them about adding The Wolf of Cape Fen, by Julianna Brandt, coming April 7th, which I'm looking forward to lots!)

Also Gail Gauthier is spotlighting authors who weren't able to publicly lunch their books in an ongoing series (that includes other book event cancelations) at her website, Original Content

Other Good Stuff
