KBK Bookclub (April 1st) | Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor

in KBKlast year


I am glad to announce that the book chosen for the next KBK Bookclub meeting is "Merry Wives of Windsor" by William Shakespeare!

The meeting shall take place at @krolestwo on April 1st at 16.00. The discussion will be held in English, but you are free to read the book in whatever language suits you best. Notice that the meeting is exceptionally falling on the first Saturday of the month and earlier than usual. This is to allow the participants to assist to Verdi's Falstaff live from the MET at Kino Kijów.

The winning book was proposed by @justynao and voted by @psypek, @margrzeta, @szmulkberg and myself. @gwyddpel proposed "Król" by Szczepan Twardoch, which received one preference by @gwyddpel himself . Finally, @psypek proposed "The picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar wild, which received no preferences!

If you are curious about how the Bookclub is run, @przeczytaj presents all the details of the project. Have a read!
