Online Intensive Literary Seminar Series – Anna Karenina
January 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PST
Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
What if the best way to end 2020 is to read “the greatest work of literature of all time”*??
Anna Karenina may clock in at 817 pages but—Kimberly swears to you—these are 817 delightful, engaging, thought provoking, historically rich pages. Tolstoy’s masterpiece is full of insanely great characters, forbidden love, military intrigue, vodka, agrarian reform and lovable wise dogs—all told with much humor and super-accessible intelligence.
Honestly, who among us does not want to escape for a couple of months to snowy, romantic Imperial Russia of the 1870s?
If you’re worried you might get bogged down, never fear! Tom Stoppard’s film adaptation is a thing of beauty. Read some then dig in to the movie and come to Kimberly’s two lectures knowing exactly what’s up.
Please join the gang in tackling this literary challenge—the longest novel in the seminars yet. You will be so glad you did.
*Debatable. But according to a poll of eminent writers by The Guardian.
Join Kimberly Ford, for this two-part seminar series on Tolstoy’s classic Anna Karenina. We will be hosting this two-part series on the following dates:
