Leave it to Dolly Parton to find a warm and thoughtful way to ease fears amidst the coronavirus pandemic. ❤️ On Monday, the country music icon unveiled plans for “Goodnight with Dolly,” a weekly video series featuring her reading different children’s stories on behalf of her Imagination Library, a literacy advocacy group. The first installment will air Thursday on the Imagination Library’s YouTube page. Calling herself “the book lady,” Parton announced the series with a short video on her Facebook page as well as a blog post on the Imagination Library’s website. “Goodnight with Dolly” will run for 10 weeks with the aim of offering children “a welcomed distraction during a time of unrest.” “This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right,” Parton said in the blog post. “I think it is pretty clear that now is the time to share a story and to share some love.” // Head to the link in bio to learn more. // 📝: @curtismwong // 📷: Getty Images
