Exclusive Preview: LeVar Burton Reads “Sea Girls”


It’s our lucky day for two reasons:

1) LeVar Burton chose Daniel Wallace’s “Sea Girls,” from the Summer 2017 issue of Tin House, to read out loud on LeVar Burton Reads, i.e. every book person’s dream of a podcast. Remember “Sea Girls”? In which two teenagers deal with family issues and a strange, stranded sea creature? The full episode airs tomorrow.

2) We get to share an exclusive preview of LeVar’s reading—right here, right now! Behold, the first five minutes of “Sea Girls” (and then, when you’re as excited as we are to hear the rest, subscribe to LeVar Burton Reads).
