A year with Stein

They are all of them themselves and they repeat it and I hear it. Part 1

They are all of them themselves and they repeat it and I hear it. Part 1 On New Year’s Eve of 1974/5 Stein's 925 page novel 'The Making of Americans' (1925) was read aloud in a ‘marathon’ 48-hour reading at Artists Space in New York, organised by Alison Knowles, Annea Lockwood, Ruth Anderson and Jean Rigg, starting a tradition that has continued into the present. After a 'mini-marathon' in London last Summer as part of Longplayer Day we proposed to slow down the format and are committing to read the book over the whole of 2020, in 4-hour chunks roughly every four weeks on a weekend afternoon. Organised by Irene Revell and Anna Barham
