Klasikoen Irakurketa Jarraitua
The Bilbo Zaharra Euskaltegia in collaboration with HABE and others is currently organizing the 8th edition of Klasikoen Irakurketa Jarraitua (Uninterrupted Reading of Classics) that will take place on June 5th from 8am-8pm at the Arriaga Theater in Bilbao. This year's chosen classic is Joseba Sarrionandia's Narrazio Guztiak (1979-1990). The work will be divided into passages and the idea is to have them read by several people, who represent all social sectors. The goal of the event is two-fold; on the one hand, it is a great way to feature Basque students who have worked so hard on learning the language, and on the other it also reflects the importance of Euskera outside of the Basque Country by including Basque speakers from abroad. If you would like to participate please respond by April 20th so that the passages can be sent out. The hope is that the reading would be recorded and returned in enough time to be included at the event on June 5th. For more information email Kinku Zinkunegi. Aupa Euskaldunak!
