To celebrate the centennial of Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way, join us at the Wythe Hotel to kick off a weeklong live reading of the classic at venues across New York City.

From November 8-14, Swann’s Way: A Nomadic Reading will feature the entirety of the iconic work read in three hour increments in locations from the Bronx to Brooklyn. In a traveling tribute, each location will echo a major theme of the reading: a hotel bedroom, for the famous opening pages; the forest of the Botanical Garden for Proust’s childhood in the countryside; a theater, to evoke the writer’s fascination with actors; a nightclub, to recall Swann’s late-night searches for the unfaithful Odette.

More information on the series can be found here.
