Ask Me Anything

On Reddit at 1 PM tomorrow

Emily Anthes

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all safe and well.

I wanted to give you all a head’s up that I’m going to be doing a Reddit AMA tomorrow at 1 PM Eastern (10 AM Pacific). I’ll be answering questions about our increasingly indoor lives and the connection between the built environment Covid-19.

Some potential topics of discussion: how to reduce the spread of pathogens indoors; the psychological and health effects of isolation, confinement, and sensory deprivation; how to stay healthy and sane while cooped up at home; how to design hospitals for an era of epidemics; and the longstanding connection between architecture and public health. But of course, as is tradition, ask me anything.

The link will go live at 12:30 PM Eastern tomorrow. You’ll be able to find it here:

According to CNN, “the family of Asian small-clawed otters were allowed to live in the river that runs through the enclosure that houses the orangutan family.” The full story, which I highly recommend and has more great photos, is here.

Hang in there,


The Great Indoors will be out in June! But you can pre-order it now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, IndieBound, Powells, or your local independent bookstore.

You can read more of my work at my website and follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads. (You can follow me on Facebook, too, I suppose, but I rarely post there.)
