Writers Revealed Classics

Writers Revealed has launched Writers Revealed Classics, a monthly live chat about great classic and world literature. It will be hosted by Bethanne Patrick, a journalist and literary critic with a master’s degree in English from the University of Virginia and by Jennifer Bassett, a literary magazine and book editor with a master’s degree from NYU and a BA from Columbia.

The first chat session will take place on August 21, 2007 and Bethanne Patrick will host a discussion on To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf.

On September 18, 2007 Jennifer Bassett will host a discussion on Rebecca, by
Daphne Du Maurier.

I’ve already ordered To The Lighthouse and Rebecca and despite the fact that my TBR stack continues to grow, I’m delighted I’ve got deadlines to help shepherd me back to these classics. I can’t think of a better, more convenient way to incorporate more classic literature into my reading diet.

Please check out Writers Revealed Classics for details.

Although I actually read Rebecca while in my teens, I confess to leaving the literary classics behind after my aborted attempt at being an English major. ;o)

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity, if one could find the time. Does the Mountain Time zone provide you with extra hours, Lisa?

And welcome home, we missed you!

I think it's a great opportunity and since I never read either of these classics, doing so in sessions hosted these two women will be a great way to learn everything I can. MST doesn't have any additional hours, but there is something magical about a deadline that keeps me on track! Thanks for the welcome back and I missed you too :)

Literary Quote

It is worth mentioning, for future reference, that the creative power which bubbles so pleasantly in beginning a new book quiets down after a time, and one goes on more steadily. Doubts creep in. Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.

Virginia Woolf
