Kristin Lavransdatter Read-Along - EVENT

Hosted by Emily at Evening All Afternoon and Richard at Caravana de Recuerdos

October 1 - December 31, 2009
Emily and Richard are hosting a read along of Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset. They write:

Starting in October and continuing through December, we'll be tackling the three volumes of Sigrid Undset's classic Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy, one volume per month.

We'll be reading the Tina Nunnally translation, which won the PEN/Book-of-the-Month-Club Translation Prize in 2001 and apparently restored a number of the more experimental passages, which had been excised from the original English translation. It's available from Penguin in both omnibus and three individual editions.
Here is the schedule:
  • October: The Wreath (pages 1-291)

  • November: The Wife (pages 295-697)

  • December: The Cross (pages 703-1124)
