Like all other things the European Beat Studies Network is going virtual for their next event, though we all hope things are back to the new abnormal by October 2021. Still, this is a good opportunity for those who can’t get to Europe and have something intelligent to say about the Beats. I have attended this event a couple of times and it is run by good and capable people.
