Don Quixote and Sancho Panza in Edinburgh

Arguably the world's first modern novel, published in 1605, Don Quixote is probably the best known Spanish novel.  What with the large number of Spanish tourists coming to Edinburgh and the fast growing number of Spanish residents in Scotland, it seems a good time to note an event coming to Summerhall to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of the author Miguel de Cervantes.

And so there is a 4 hour public participation reading from the novel on Saturday 23rd April between 6 and 10pm at Summerhall.  The reading is in English.  Vamos Scotland has the details.
