    Hear writers, storytellers, and poets share their personal stories from the new anthology, "COVIDOLOGY: Sharing Life Lessons from Behind the Mask."

"COVIDOLOGY: Sharing Life Lessons from Behind the Mask" is an anthology that explores how COVID has affected people. How similar have your experiences been? Is there an end to this? Will we be better off? Knowledge of others' experiences with COVID is one step in understanding the answers. These stories and poems are meant to be read and shared.
