You can now stop by the library to pick up a copy of Miguel de Cervantes’s classic novel, Don Quixote. Now 400 years old, Don Quixote is still widely regarded as one of the greatest works of fiction ever written. This modern translation by Edith Grossman will be the topic of our 2017 Reading and Discussion Series with Suzanne Brown sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council.
Eager for some historic and literary context before the first discussion? Listen to “The Enduring Appeal of the Quixotic Cervantes” from NPR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook here >>
