Magers & Quinn Booksellers is hosting a marathon Beowulf reading on Saturday, January 24, starting at 12:00 pm and going until approximately 5:00 pm (or however long it lasts). I’m told they will be reading from the R. K. Gordon translation, and are still seeking people to sign up for reading time slots.
The marathon Beowulf reading is in conjunction with National Readathon Day is a national fundraiser to encourage people to both get together and “marathon read” together, and to help fund the National Book Foundationy’s efforts to educate, tutor, create and sustain a lifelong love of reading.
