Madame Bovary Marathon Reading

Join Gallatin students, faculty, and staff for a marathon-style reading of "romantic" excerpts from Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary, as translated by Lydia Davis. Professors Stacy Pies and June Foley will host, in conjunction with their respective courses Narrative Investigations II: Realism to Postmodernism and Desperate Housewives of the 19th-Century Novel. The event will take place in the Gallatin lobby, and attendees are welcome to come and go throughout the three-hour performance of the text.
