    ALONE TOGETHER: LOVE, GRIEF, AND COMFORT DURING THE TIME OF COVID-19

    Book ID/图书代码: 12580020C00036

    English Summary/英文概要: ALONE TOGETHER: Love, Grief, and Comfort During the Time of COVID-19 is a collection of essays, poems, and interviews to serve as a lifeline for negotiating how to connect and thrive during this stressful time of isolation as well as a historical perspective that will remain relevant for years to come. Jennifer Haupt, editor and curator of this anthology, and Central Avenue Publishing, as well as all contributing authors, are donating net profits to The Book Industry Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization that coordinates charitable programs to strengthen the bookselling community. In response to the pandemic, Ms. Haupt rallied more than 90 authors to contribute their work to ALONE TOGETHER, free of charge, to support struggling independent booksellers forced to close their doors. The roster of diverse voices includes Kwame Alexander, Jenna Blum, Andre Dubus III, Jamie Ford, Nikki Giovanni, Pam Houston, Jean Kwok, Major Jackson, Caroline Leavitt, Ada Limón, Dani Shapiro, David Sheff, Garth Stein, Luis Alberto Urrea, Steve Yarbrough, and Lidia Yuknavitch. ALONE TOGETHER is divided into five sections: Love, Grief, Comfort, Grace, and Possibilities. The overarching theme is how this age of isolation and uncertainty is changing us as individuals and a society.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:"I loved Alone Together. It’s a brilliant, diverse, rich collections of essays, poetry, essays and dialogue by some of our most important (and some of my personal favorite) authors. Of course, the writing is as beautiful as it is varied. While the subject matter is overwhelmingly depressing, it’s also reassuring to read that I’m not alone in what I’m feeling. These are powerful messages of unity and hope in a time of isolation and despair. Alone Together is a very important work that has emerged from a very dark time." --Kevin O’Brien, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Bad Sister and The Betrayed Wife

    "Alone Together connects writers, readers, and booksellers in a wonderfully imaginative way. It’s a really good book for a really good cause." --James Patterson, Bestselling author, and Co-Ambassador for The Book Industry Charitable Foundation

    "Alone Together showcases the human desire to grieve, explore, comfort, connect, and simply sit with the world as it weathers the pandemic. Jennifer Haupt’s timely and moving anthology also benefits the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, making it a project that is noble in both word and deed." --Ann Patchett, Bestselling author, bookseller, and Co-Ambassador for The Book Industry Charitable Foundation
