The Dispossessed – Group Reading

7pm - 9pm

A group reading and recording of one complete chapter of Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Dispossessed, including existing hand-written notes, marginalia and underlined passages. The paperback books used here come from a collection of over one hundred copies of Ursula K. Le Guin’s popular 1974 novel.

An ongoing series organized by Danielle Aubert consisting of group readings and recordings for each chapter of The Dispossessed, with the goal of putting together a kind of “used book audio recording” of the entire book. Previous recordings have been conducted at Ditto Ditto books in Detroit (Chapter 1), and at Labyrinth Books in Princeton, NJ (Chapter 2).
