MLA Platinum Award Press Release

Each week, we're sharing a few links to cultural experiences you can access from home during the pandemic, such as online concerts, theater and art. This week we suggest:

  • Gloria: A Life, a play about Gloria Steinem, one of the most inspiring women of the feminist movement, on PBS Great Performances (June 26 - July 24)
  • A virtual tour of The Sistine Chapel (with not a tourist in sight); and then listen to a clip from Allegri's Miserere, part of the first ever public recording made from the Sistine Chapel in 2015.
  • Nine works by Black composers who changed the course of classical music history at Classic FM
  • Online classes with the National Ballet of Canada from absolute beginners to advanced, including a beginner's class for ages 55+. More about the program (classes were initially offered for free but now appear to be C$10.75 each)

Also, check out our "beyond the book" articles that explore a historical, cultural or contextual aspect of every book we feature.
