To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of publication of Du côté de chez Swann, the Yale French Department invites you to partake in our marathon reading of the complete first installment of À la recherche du temps perdu!
In a full-scale recreation of Proust's cork-lined bedroom, approximately 100 students, scholars, and guests will take turns reading their favorite passages from the masterpiece in the language of their choice: French, German, English, Chinese, Portuguese, and more.
Our Proust Marathon will take place from 7:30am on November 16th, 2013 to 3:30am on November 17th, 2013 at the Saybrook Underbrook Theatre at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut.
Soyez des nôtres and sign up to read at any time of the day you please! All are welcome. Food, refreshments, and plenty of madeleines will be served throughout the day.
