100 Days of War and Peace begins Feb. 1

Following on successful community reading projects in 2020, the City of Literature once again offers the chance join with others from around the world to read a classic novel. This time we will gather to read Leo Tolstoy’s classic, War and Peace. Over 100 days, from Feb. 1-May 10, we will read a section every day and discuss it here with our host, Anna Barker.

Anna, an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Iowa, will assign each day’s reading of about 10 to 14 pages, and offer commentary. This commentary, and what promises to be a robust discussion of the book, can be found in a special group on the City of Literature’s Facebook page. You also can read Anna’s introductions to the book and learn about the reading assignments at the War and Peace page on our website.

We recommend the translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, but you can join along with any version you have at hand. Please join us for this exciting reading project!
