Come sail the high seas with Captains of Literary Wonderment!
Have you ever been hiked out on the high side, your boat at a 30 degree heel, wind filling your spinnaker, spray hitting your face as you scream across the water at 20 knots? Well, if you have, you'll understand the excitement this Virtual Book Festival will bring. If you haven't, throw caution to the wind, and join us for the Summer Reading Regatta!
Ready at The Sheets! Tonight, Captains at the Helm will include Dennis Mellen, Michael Beardslee, and D.A. Reed.
Each Captain will have five (5) minutes at the Helm to read a piece from their book. After all the Captains have read, we will offer time for Q&A from the Shoreline Spectators (YOU)! Captains at the Helm will have the opportunity to share their screen during their Race Leg... but Spectators cheering from the Shoreline will only have access to CHAT.
At each Race Leg, we'll spin the Nautical Wheel of Happiness, and give away books and perhaps other prizes.
The Reading Regatta is hosted Live on Zoom, and recorded. Race Legs will be archived on our YouTube channel, and may also be rebroadcast on television, at a future date.
All Summer Reading Regatta Legs are Free and Family-Friendly! Regatta Legs last approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of Captains taking the Helm, and the interaction from Shoreline Spectators.
