2020 is uniques for many reasons related to the COVID-19
pandemic. Kids out of school (I sub, so work is out, too),
physical church attendance on hold (my first ZOOM events),
and no libraries! Also no book events. I'm just thankful not to
have gotten ill and that we know we can minimize transmission
by wearing masks. My annual trip to Maryland for the
Kensington Festival of the Book is out, but other things have
been rescheduled. Right now I plan to attend events noted here,
and if I change my mind (or they are cancelled) I'll let you know.
