Share this story with your world:

The school year for the Class of 2020 isn’t ending as planned, but that doesn’t mean graduation is canceled. Random House is presenting a Virtual Commencement on Tuesday, May 12 at 8:00pm (ET), when an all-star cast of authors will toast and share words of inspiration for this year’s grads.

Participants will hear speeches from Martha Stewart (Martha Stewart’s Cookie Perfection), George Saunders (Congratulations, By the Way), Lauren Graham (In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It), Donovan Livingston (Lift Off), Wes Moore (The Other Wes Moore), Reshma Saujani (Brave, Not Perfect), David Brooks (The Second Mountain), and Anna Quindlen (A Short Guide to a Happy Life).

Gift this evening of words and stories to the graduate in your life—or a loved one who could use a rousing dose of inspiration, no matter what path they’re on.
