    Country music legend and goddamn national treasure Dolly Parton (who also happens to be a true fairy godmother of American literacy) is going to be reading to us all starting this Thursday, April 2. As you can see below, the founder of the Imagination Library will be treating an isolated and beleaguered world to some bedtime children stories, the better to help us all get a good night’s sleep. (It’ll never happen but I’d pay good money to hear Dolly read Suttree or The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.)
