He currently has a podcast by the same title but said he wanted to create a live, ad-free experience accessible to everyone vie Twitter.

Mondays For Children: 9: 00am PT/12:00 pmET

Wednesdays For Young Adults: 3:00 pm PT/6:00 pm ET

Fridays For Adults: 6:00 pm PT/9:00pm ET

The first adult night will kick off with Neil Gaiman’s “We Can Get Them for You Wholesale.” With the next reading on Monday, April 7, starting with children’s book he co-authored with Susan Schaefer Bernardo called “The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm,” followed by “Amazing Grace” by Mary Hoffman. Jason Reynolds’ “Look Both Ways: A Tale Told in Ten Blocks,” will headline the first young adult reading.
