“For all is like an ocean, all flows and connects; touch it in one place and it echoes at the other end of the world.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
The #KaramazovReadalong has reached a milestone in our journey. We are at the midpoint of the book.
Liz Humphreys from Edinburgh, Scotland, and Elisabeth Van Der Meer from Porvoo, Finland have joined me to look back on what we’ve learned, and look forward to what may come.
You may recall that a few months ago, I received an invitation from my blogger friend and book aficionado, Liz Humphreys to join her on a readalong of The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This readalong was to coincide with the 200th year anniversary of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s birth. The stars aligned when Elisabeth Van Der Meer, from A Russian Affair, agreed to join the party.
Where are we? What have we learned? What comes next? These are the questions that will be discussed.
So put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you, Liz, for your willingness to take on this massive project and for your invitation to enter the world of Russian Literature. Thank you, Elisabeth, for adding breadth and depth to our understanding. I am looking forward to road ahead and to our next podcast in which will celebrate the ending of a journey well made.
Thank you for joining Liz, Elisabeth, and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. And a very special thank you Liz and Elizabeth for adding your enthusiasm and insights on The Brother’s Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky. His words from The Brothers Karamazov will enlighten the journey ahead.
“This is my last message to you: in sorrow, seek happiness,” Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
