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

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.
