We at PPL have a virtual program coming up on 5/11 that may be of interest to you or to your patrons:

On COVID’s Front Lines: Maine Healthcare Workers in Their Own Words
Tuesday, May 11 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Location: ONLINE
Audience: Adults

For those who have followed news of COVID-19 only in the form of statistics, or the heartbreaking illness of loved ones and friends, or the ever-evolving public health guidance, there is another pandemic story to be told. Maine healthcare workers, from hospitals to nursing homes to hospice care, have experienced this unprecedented year in a way few of the rest of us have fully understood. This live virtual panel discussion explores the pandemic from its first days to the present through the experiences of a group of Southern Maine health professionals from Hospice of Southern Maine, the University of New England School of Nursing, and elsewhere in the sector.

The panel will be moderated by Portland-based journalist Dan Koeppel, co-author with Dr. Robert Mayer, MD, of the forthcoming Every Minute is a Day: A Doctor, an Emergency Room, and a City Under Siege. Koeppel received a James Beard award for his book Banana: The Fate of the Fruit that Changed the World, and the London Independent called his first book, To See Every Bird on Earth: A Father, A Son, and A Lifelong Obsession, “[a] tender, beautifully written account by an outstanding nature writer.”
