Book Discussion Schedule

El Talmud de Viena, by G.H. Guarch

The book is structured in four parts (plus the epilogue). Therefore, and although the parts aren't equal in length, it makes sense to follow the author's and book's rhythm to mark our reading and discussion pace. 

So, here it is our suggested schedule for discussing the novel: 

> Part 1 (the longest, around 300 pages in my edition): second weekend of April
> Part 2: first weekend of May
> Part 3: last weekend of May
> Part 4: fourth weekend of May

Looking forward to enjoying the history and stories of the book with you.
