Coronavirus Comfort Reading: Books to Make You Feel Better During a Pandemic

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
During times of upheaval and uncertainty, reading can provide solace, comfort, enlightenment and distraction. I'll be sharing some of my favourite reads of late – fiction, non-fiction, poetry, longform journalism and kids' books. Expect some fun, light reading and some more challenging, political texts; Jewish books and non-Jewish books (but if there's a Jewish angle to Northanger Abbey, I'll find it); a bit of high-brow and a bit of low-brow. Join the conversation and share what you've been reading too! (Here is a list of our recs.)
