American actor LeVar Burton has announced the launch of LeVar Burton Reads, a Twitter livestream read-aloud video series.
The series is a livestreamed version of his weekly short story podcast of the same name, which launched in June 2017.
Burton will read children’s stories starting at 12 p.m. ET on Mondays, while Wednesday afternoons from 3 p.m. ET will be devoted to YA fiction. Friday evenings at 9 p.m. ET will feature short stories for adult readers.
“I figured that during this difficult time I could contribute by reading aloud to folks who could use some diversion for themselves and their families,” Burton tweeted.
