Anthony Trollope Bicentennial Celebration: Sign Up Here!


In exactly two months, on April 24, it will be the 200th anniversary of Anthony Trollope's birth.  In honor of one of my favorite writers, I'm hosting a month-long celebration of his life and work.  Here is where you can sign up to participate.  I've never hosted anything like this before, but I'm planning on posting weekly round-ups of anything relating to Trollope, awarding prizes (for U.S. and international bloggers) and reading as much Trollope as I can squeeze into a single month.  If you're interested, you can link any postings related to Trollope.  It could be a book review of one of his many novels, TV adaptations, or you could just ruminate about anything Trollope-related.  

Who's with me? Sign up with the Linky below!

  1. Sounds wonderful

    I used LadyGlen somewhere along the way as a user name on a website, so you see I am a fan

  5. Looking forward! I'm planning to host an Elizabeth Goudge Reading Week starting on the 24th, as well -- I belatedly realized she and AT share the same birthday! The rest of the month I'll be happily Trolloping, hoping to read Dr. Thorne at least.

  8. I'm in! I have The Way We Live Now, He Knew He Was Right and The Three Clerks on tap. I'll see if I make it through all three, but I will be able to read one for sure.

  9. So far I have only read The Eustace Diamonds. However, I found a set of his Palliser novels that I plan on reading.

  11. This is so exciting! I love Trollope but haven't read anything by him in ages. Think it will be The Eustace Diamonds or Orley Farm for me.

  12. I think this will be a perfect introduction to Trollope. I've got The Warden waiting for me.

  13. I decided to come back and tell you that you inspired me to buy the six volume set of The Chronicles of Barsetshire. The set of six was a bargain in Kindle at 99 cents! I started reading The Warden and like it very much.

  17. I have Eustace in progress. As funny as Trollope gets.

    No prizes for me, please. Leave me out of the drawings.
