LeVar Burton Reads YA on Wednesdays

With everyone staying home and practicing social distancing, more and more authors and celebrities are stepping up to provide storytimes in the form of live streams to the social media platform of their choice. Most of these livestreams focus on children’s stories and children’s books. One celebrity, however, chose to spread his read-alouds across different age groups and interests. 

LeVar Burton, host of the book podcast LeVar Burton Reads, has taken to Twitter on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to livestream storytimes for each age group. Mondays for children, Wednesdays for YA, and Fridays for adults. 

So sit back and enjoy a storytime for teens on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm on LeVar Burton’s Twitter, and even interact with other listeners if you have a Twitter account.
