Welcome to Tablet Live! a weekly series bringing live events to your home. We’re hosting regular concerts, culinary experiences, weird performance art happenings, and talks with artists, writers, political leaders, rabbis, and rappers—and you’ll have a chance to interact with our guests, too, by sending questions in advance to [email protected] or just typing them in the Q&A during the event.
If you’re on a mobile device, you’ll need to download the free Zoom videoconference app here first. If you’re on desktop or PC, you should be able to access the link without downloading anything. To make things simpler, times will always be listed in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
And don’t worry, you’ll be able to see us, but we won’t be able to see you. So no need to change out of your pajamas but if you want to dress up, that’s cool, too.
Check back here to see what’s coming up next on the Tablet Live! calendar and to find the videos posted after every event.
