Starting April 2nd at 7pm, Dolly Parton will begin a new weekly video show called Goodnight With Dolly . The series will feature the country legend reading a selection of children's books over the course of 10 weeks.
"This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right," Parton explains in a statement. "I think it is pretty clear that now is the time to share a story and to share some love. It is an honor for me to share the incredible talent of these authors and illustrators. They make us smile, they make us laugh and they make us think."
The literary selections will not only include Parton's own children's books I Am a Rainbow and Coat of Many Colors,but also a selection of lighthearted tales from authors like Anna Dewdney, Patty Lovell and Loren Long.
"(Each title has been) carefully chosen for their appropriate content at this moment in time," a press release about the video series notes.
