Neworld announces book club for The Idiot

November 16, 2011

The Idiot. The production. The BOOK CLUB.

In preparation for our upcoming production of The Idiot, Neworld Theatre is starting an online conversation about Dostoyevsky’s great novel. And we invite you to join the chat!

This is a unique opportunity to engage with the story on a whole new journey: enjoy the book, discuss it with other readers, see our production and continue the discussion. Establish a relationship with the characters and the story that goes beyond just reading or watching – join a community!

It’s easy:

  • First, join the online social network for literature Goodreads (www.goodreads.com) – it’s free and basically like Facebook for book-lovers. You can also download the free app for your iPhone or iPad.
  • Add Neworld Theatre as a friend.
  • Read the book (obviously!). It’s easy to find in most used or new bookstores or you can download it for free online at Project Gutenberg (www.gutenberg.org)
  • Add “The Idiot” to your books in Goodreads. Then you can join the Neworld discussion on the book: “Page to stage in a whole new way!” When you do this, you’ll be joining a community of readers who discuss the book and anticipate the Neworld production.
  • Invite friends to join and help expand the discussion.

Happy reading! Happy chatting!
