This blog is for a group of parents from Ecole Bilingue, a French American school in Berkeley, California. We are engaged in reading Marcel Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu, or In Search of Lost Time, over a three-year period (with summers off), keeping to a pace of about 200 pages per month.
Some members of our group are reading in French; some in English.
On this blog I will aim to provide brief summaries of the conversations that we have on the first Wednesday of every month, beginning on November 2, 2011, and ending... sometime in 2014.
But this will also be a space for reflecting on our experience of reading Proust together, outside of the monthly meetings. Members of the group -- and all those following this blog -- are encouraged to write guest posts about whatever is on their minds (just send them to me by email, and I'll put them up) and, of course, to carry on our conversations in the comments section below each post.
