The Marguerite de Navarre Society/La Société Marguerite de Navarre is pleased to announce the 72 Days of Heptameron virtual reading and discussion project.
Grab a copy (print or digital) of Marguerite de Navarre’s lively collection of tales from Renaissance France, read her short Prologue, and get ready to discuss a story a day beginning on Sunday, November 1.
Discussion will take place on the 72 Days of Heptameron website and on the 72 Days of Heptameron Facebook group — feel free to participate in either or both!

Take refuge from the floodwaters swirling around us … find yourself a peaceful meadow (or a kitchen table or a closet or a spot underneath the couch or a pile of leaves or snow) … and make time for a story … as we build bridges from speakers to listeners, from a writer to readers, from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, and from a pandemic to whatever lies ahead.
