Triple Canopy Marathon Reading: Gertrude Stein's The Making of Americans (Jan. 18, 2013)

(Excerpt from 'The Making of Americans' posted on triplecanopy. Found on http://canopycanopycanopy.com/programs/77?utm_source=Triple+Canopy+mailing+list&utm_campaign=1263bcca3f-MoA2013-reminder&utm_medium=email)

Triple Canopy is pleased to present its second annual marathon reading of Gertrude Stein’s enormously long and allegedly unreadable novel The Making of Americans: Being a History of a Family’s Progress. Over one weekend, an invited list of New York–based artists, writers, publishers, scholars, and other collaborators will gather in Greenpoint to perform the entirety of Stein’s text in a continuous read-in, expected to last 52 hours, more or less. The schedule of readers is below, including time slots for walk-ins. There will be coffee and donuts during the dawn walk-in hours; borscht and booze at dinnertime; and champagne toasts.

Gertrude Stein and The Making of Americans have been central to conversations between literature, art, and publishing for more than a century; and those histories and connections are, in turn, central to Triple Canopy’s publishing and programming in Greenpoint, online, and elsewhere.
