FREDERICK, Md.—A yearlong reading group discussing Miguel de Cervantes’ book “Don Quixote” will meet the first and third Thursdays of the month at Hood College.
The Hood College Center for the Humanities 2015-16 colloquium series on Impossible Dreams is hosting the group, starting Sept. 3 from 1:15 to 2 p.m. The first meeting will be in the Whitaker Campus Center, Room 220. The remaining meetings will be in the Beneficial-Hodson Library and Technology Center, Room 2007.
The colloquium series’ website is hood.libguides.com/colloquium and includes a full reading schedule and a blog where people can comment about the book.
Participants may read any translation or the original Spanish. The leaders of the group, Professor Katy Fulfer and librarian Aimee Gee, will be using Edith Grossman’s recent English translation. A few free copies of the book will be available at the library’s reference desk to members of the community on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This year is the 400th anniversary of the completed “Don Quixote,” and 2016 will mark the 400th anniversary of the author’s death.
This is an informal, drop-in reading group. For more information, contact Fulfer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-696-3211 or Gee at email@example.com or 301-696-3909, ext. 3975.
