Missing Museums? Check Out Some Virtual Art Exhibits This Summer
By the LJ and SLJ editors
Many museums and art galleries remain closed because of the pandemic, but art lovers have an array of virtual options to explore. This week we highlight eight outstanding online exhibits, from a look at art in the age of coronavirus to the Tate's retrospective on Warhol.
 
On the bookish front, our editors share some of the top titles they're reading and enjoying this month, including James McBride's latest and a guide to cooking with scraps.
 
For teen readers looking for lighthearted humor—and who couldn't use more of that these days?—we round up 16 laugh-out-loud YA novels.
