As we stay indoors during uncertain times, we’re staying connected with each other and the stories and authors who inspire us. We’re compiling the virtual Penguin Random House book events, author Q&A’s and more that are happening each week (EST), and will be updating this page daily. Even if you miss an event streaming live, please check back here and watch the recordings.

See events that took place 3/23-3/29, 3/30-4/5, 4/6-4/12, 4/13-4/19, 4/20-5/3, 5/4-5/17, 5/18-5/31, and 6/1-6/14.
