We Invite You to Read by the Sea Virtually!

Read by the Sea is back in July 2021. To keep everyone safe, we’re moving to a virtual festival format. You’ll still see and hear our amazing slate of authors read from their wonderful works via video recordings. And we’re working out ways that you, dear readers, can submit your burning questions for them to answer.

Visit this website, our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/readbythesea) and our Twitter feed (@RJreadbythesea) often in the coming weeks for more details about WordPlay 2021.
