Critical Linking, a daily roundup of the most interesting bookish links from around the web is sponsored by Flatiron Books, publisher of Miss Austen by Gill Hornby.
“Everyone has received at least one and now they’ve been elevated to poetry: a US teacher has highlighted corporate opportunism during the coronavirus outbreak, in a viral poem titled First Lines of Emails I’ve Received While Quarantining.
Jessica Salfia, an English teacher and writer in West Virginia, posted the poem on Twitter on Saturday. ‘In these uncertain times / as we navigate the new normal, / Are you willing to share your ideas and solutions? / As you know, many people are struggling,” the poem begins.'”
Okay, it seems like the overwhelming response is YES, so—let’s do this thing! Every day I’ll highlight a book I love (old or new) and an indie bookstore you should know. Order from them or your indie of choice! #DailyBookAndIndie
