Infinite Summer (Infinite Jest) Reading Schedule

Here ye, here ye! Here be the schedule for Infinite Jest and how we’re planning on reading it.

So as a reminder from this post, the MediaFile will be reading David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest this summer. Our goal is to read 110 pages a week and meet every Wednesday to discuss it at Sullivan’s Publick House in Pawtucket, RI.  Please note that Wednesdays are pint night, so if you order a specialty pint, you get to keep the glass.

We also have a facebook group for updates and events, as well as chat in between. And of course, our newly-launched MediaFile subreddit. All updates for the book club will be splattered across social media, so feel free to follow on your favorite platform.

And without further ado, I present… the schedule!
