Don Quixote Online Book Group Begins this Friday
GritoBlast! — Newly introduced by leading Quixote scholar Ilan Stavans, this 400th Anniversary edition of Don Quixote—called the most popular book in history after the Bible and the first modern novel—inaugurates Restless Classics: interactive encounters with great books and inspired teachers.
Each Restless Classic is beautifully designed with original artwork, a new introduction for the trade audience, and a video teaching series and live online book club discussions led by passionate experts.
On Friday, November 6, from 1:00 – 3:00 EST at the Restless Books Facebook page, the first of four live, online discussions about Don Quixote, led by Restless publisher Ilan Stavans will take place. They’ll be talking about the first quarter of the text, and more generally about the book and its place in the world.
Even if you haven’t started reading yet, they’d love to hear from you!
How: Find the book discussion post on the Facebook page, and add your question or comment in the “Write a comment” field. Ilan Stavans and the Restless team will respond to you. Feel free to respond to other questions and comments, too!
Who: The first online book group discussion is free and open to the public.
The Restless Classics edition of Don Quixote comes with a corresponding series of eight teaching videos led by Ilan Stavans. Once you have the book in hand, you’ll see a set of instructions on the first page and a website where, after entering your information, you’ll be able to access the videos. The Don Quixote video teaching series filmed by Ilan Stavans is exclusively available to those who’ve purchased the book.
