Literature in the Time of Coronavirus

In the years to come, I image there will be many novels, picture books, and more that deal with the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-2021. Some of that literature already exists for adults, young adults, and children. In the San Jose Public Library catalog, those titles include a poetry collection, a short story collection for adults, a short story collection for young adults, and picture books written for children to help them cope with being physically apart from loved ones during the pandemic. Take a look.
