It was a global pandemic that the world was unprepared for. Millions died. Many millions more still suffer from long-term effects. At the time, we were shocked by the images, and scared.

One could say the epicenter of Covid-19 was New York City, where the dead overwhelmed the morgues. Who could forget the images of the trucks lined up outside hospitals to stockpile the bodies? Nobody was immune and everyone had a story.

Lorraine Ash is a journalist who documented some of these accounts in her book: Corona City: Voices from an Epicenter. She anthologizes stories from some of the people who worked on the frontlines of the pandemic, who were sick and survived, and how this moment in history shaped our new normal. It’s important to note that 100 percent of the book’s proceeds go towards hunger relief.

This is the third book for the award-winning Ash, who is a book editor and author coach. She has covered stories about the White House, homeless shelters, disaster zones, psychiatric wards, and more. Her stories provide a raw, unfiltered look at life at its most vulnerable moments.
