What a thrill to participate in the Newburyport Literaray Festival, which was a virtual event this year. The silver lining was the great number of people who could attend, from all over the world. The wonderful panels, readings and events were recorded and are available at the Video Channel of the Festival, which plays on YouTube. I enjoyed the chat feature--reading the comments afterwards gave me the impression it was truly a live event.
