Tonight, the Mythgard Institute‘s free online series — Mythgard Academy — will begin its discussion of Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell led by Dr. Corey Olsen (The Tolkien Professor). I personally invite and encourage you all to attend these discussions live! They’ll happen weekly at 9:30 pm EDT on Wednesdays for the next few months (it’s quite a long book).
You can register to attend here, and also download the audio or video of any classes you miss after the fact.
For anyone who is not familiar with the book and is wondering why you should care, check out this post I wrote for Mythgard’s blog which gives a brief introduction to the book’s main ideas.
You can also watch and download past Mythgard Academy classes here.
I hope to see you there! If you end up participating, let me know in the comments what you think of the book and the lecture series.
