KBK Bookclub (March 11th) | Pedro Calderón de la Barca's La vida es sueño (Life Is a Dream).

in #bookclublast year


I am glad to announce that the book chosen for the next KBK Bookclub meeting is "La vida es sueño" by Pedro Calderón de la Barca!

The meeting shall take place at @krolestwo on March 11th at 19.00. The discussion will be held in English, but you are free to read the book in whatever language suits you best.

The winning book was proposed by @szmulkberg and voted by @wayward-dreams and @szmulkberg himself. @edwinedwin proposed "Animal Farm" (G. Orwell), "The Alchemist" (P. Coelho) and "Green Mile" (S. King); the latter supported by myself. Finally, @psypek proposed "Kamień na kamieniu" by Wiesław Myśliwski, which was voted by @justynao and @psypek himself. A third vote from @aaiwan arrived after the deadline and must be discounted. Given that both "La vida es sueño" and "Kamień na kamieniu" received two preferences, RCR voting powers have been used as a discriminant, determining a victory for Pedro's book!

The calendar invite for the KBK Bookclub is available here. If you are curious about how the Bookclub is run, @przeczytaj presents all the details of the project. Have a read!
