I am not a fan of paid events at bookstores, but some of these look quite interesting. Some will be interesting for grown-ups as well. For instance: “Meet the translator of Harry Potter & learn how to translate short stories”? I’m curious.
In any event, I’m excited about (virtually) any story times, book readings, book events, book-exchange parties, book parties, kids-book culture. Still, although I’m not a businessperson, I think the way to jump-start reading is to offer as much as possible for free.
