An exhausted EMT risking his life in New York City; a grocery store owner feeding his neighborhood for free in locked-down New Orleans; a Maryland restaurateur forced to close his family business after 46 years. In Voices from the Pandemic: Americans Tell Their Stories of Crisis, Courage and Resilience, journalist Eli Saslow captures in real-time a nation’s fear, anger, uncertainty, and compassion. In The Plague Year: America in the Time of Covid, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright offers an unprecedented, momentous account of the Covid-19 pandemic – its origins, its wide-ranging repercussions, and the ongoing global fight to contain it. Moderated by journalist and author Sheri Fink.
