Join Cathy at 746 Books to celebrate Irish writing during the month of March.

You might like to join in by reading an Irish classic. Or two. Or three.

Dewithon is an opportunity for book bloggers around the world to discover Welsh writers and their works (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, plays, in fact anything written in English or Welsh with links to the nation of Wales). We will begin our 31 days of celebration on Sunday 1st March 2020 (St. David’s Day), with the first of four readalong posts scheduled for 7th March. There are plenty of useful links and reading suggestions at DHQ (Dewithon Headquarters) and in our Wales Readathon Library, but please don’t hesitate to ask for help if you are struggling to get started. You are free to read and write on any literary subject relating to Wales, but if you are one of those people who prefer a little structure to your readathons, I make the following suggestion: the English translation of Un Nos Ola Leuad (One Moonlit Night) by Caradog Prichard (1904-1980), a lost contemporary classic, felt by many to be in dire need of rediscovery.

    1. I’m hosting a Reading Classic Books Challenge, which can be done in conjunction with The Classics Club Challenge. There are 12 prompts, Instagram challenges, and giveaways. So, hopefully people can find books from Classics Club reading list to fit the prompts.


      1. Part of me says, “Absolutely!” and part of me says, “Yeah, prolly not gonna happen.” Maybe make a poll and have people vote on what they’d like to have included? Or let everyone choose their own things and just have it be a “read some Shakespeare” event like the Women Authors event from a year or two ago?
