Exploring Classics is hosting a read-along of Candide by Voltaire in March. As this is a fairly short classic and shows up on some of the "best of" list I thought I would join.
The event will be from March 1-31.
Exploring Classics will be reading the work in the original language (French), 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 each chapter post, you have a whole week to comment on the chapter.
Plenty of time to plan ahead and join!
Published in 1759 this French satire follows Candide from a young man living a sheltered life to new world of living influenced by his mentor, Pangloss.
