Fariba from Exploring Classics is doing a read-along of Candide by Voltaire in March and I have decided to join. My schedule should have eased somewhat by then and I should be able to fit it in relatively easily.
Here is the outline:
The event will be from March 1 – 31, 2014.
Fariba will be reading the work in the original language, but all posts will be in English. Here is the posting schedule:
Monday, March 10: chapters 1 – 8
Monday, March 17: chapters 9 – 16
Monday March 24: chapters 17 – 24
Monday, March 31: chapters 25 – 30 (last post)
After she posts about a series of chapters, you have a whole week to comment on those chapters.
Depending on if I have enough time, I may tried to read the novel in the original French, or at the very least read some of it in French. I don’t quite know what to expect from this novel but I’m looking forward to it!
