New Tour: Land of the Rising Sun Meiji-era Literature

The Classics Circuit is back from vacation! We’re doing a tour next month, and we’d love for you to join in.

The Land of the Rising Sun Meiji-era Tour focuses on literature by Japanese writers that wrote between 1868 and 1912. We have an extensive list of some of those authors on the site. Read some gothic stories by Izumi Kyōka or Natsume Soseki’s psychological novels.

Come read about the era and some of the authors that wrote in Meiji Japan. I hope you decide to sign up for the tour too.

The tour will run from October 25 until November 5.

Sign up by next Friday night.

The Classics Circuit Appreciates YOU

Although The Classics Circuit is on an extended vacation right now, I want to put a shout out to all past participants of the Classics Circuit tours. It’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week and I certainly appreciate all you.

It was during BBAW last year that I mentioned on my blog the crazy brilliant idea of sponsoring classic authors through a “blog tour,” and from those discussions, The Classics Circuit was born. I have loved visiting your blogs through the past year as we’ve highlighted everything from Wilkie Collins to Emile Zola and Georgette Heyer.

Here’s to you: thank you for your participation and support!

You are appreciated!

From Rebecca
