The Italian Book Club


The Italian Book Club

The Italian Book Club, presented by Enrica Maria Ferrara, will explore 4 books by Italian authors.

During the first meeting, the facilitator of the Book Club will introduce the book and give some information about its author. Then, each participant will have the chance to read aloud selected passages of the book.

During the reading, aspects of the book’s grammar, its language structures and its lexicon will be highlighted and explained by the facilitator, and participants will be encouraged to ask questions about the passages that they have found more challenging to read.

During the second meeting, each participant will be encouraged to discuss the book and the facilitator will guide the conversation by asking questions about the book’s characters, plot, message as well as its style and the overall enjoyment of their particular reading experience.

It is likely that public conversations with one or more of the writers whose books have been selected for the Book Club will also be organized by the Italian Cultural Institute.

Please note that for this course an advanced level of Italian is required.

The Club consists of 8 meetings of 2 hours each, for a total of 16 hours.
