Two Month Review LIVE!!!
Over the next couple weeks, you’re going to hear me mess up this announcement on podcast after podcast, but on Saturday, September 30th at 3:30pm Lytton and I will be recording the final episode of the second season of the Two Month Review LIVE at Spoonbill & Sugartown in Brooklyn.
This will be part of the Taste of Iceland events taking place from September 28th through October 1st. There will be music events, film screenings, food tastings, art exhibits, and, of course, literary readings. Here’s a link to the official announcement for the literary stuff, which starts with Eliza Reid, the First Lady of Iceland, talking about Iceland’s story tradition, following by this:
Immediately following The Write Stuff literature discussion by Eliza Reid, join in the live recording of Chad Post’s Two Month Review podcast as it dives into the classic Icelandic epic, Tómas Jónsson, Bestseller, by Guðbergur Bergsson. Featuring a reading from renowned Icelandic translator, Lytton Smith, the live recording will cover the last section of the book many consider to be the “Icelandic Ulysses.”
This recording of the Two Month Review is the culmination of a season long analysis of Bergsson’s work, with each episode meticulously dissecting, discussing and appreciating Tómas Jónsson, Bestseller section by section and page by page. With rotating guests that include famous authors, booksellers, translators, and other readers, the podcast is perfect for anyone interested in plumbing the depths of this fascinating novel about the dangers of nationalism, chamber pots, and death.
We’ve never done this live before, so . . . . come on out to support us! We’ll be covering the last bit of the book, looking back on it as a whole, and taking questions from the audience. Should be even more shambolic than our usual recordings!
The event is free, and will be followed by a reception. But they do ask that you RSVP on Facebook so that they have an idea of how many people to expect.
Hope to see you in a few weeks!
