Italian Reading in the Park — Adua, by Igiaba Scego

September 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

In this new series, we share excerpts from contemporary Italian books that speak to issues of class and race in Italy — all’aria aperta!

In this first instalment, we take a look at Adua, by Igiaba Scego. This novel, loosely based on Scego’s own life, follows Adua: a young Somali woman living in Rome, from her arrival there at 17 years old.

Reading and discussion will take place in Italian.

Admission is free, but we will be accepting donations, which will be given to the Centre de Services et d’Intégration des Minorités Culturelles (learn more here: https://csimc.wordpress.com/)

Our Reading in the Park series will adhere to strict social distancing rules. All participating members are asked to:

1) Bring their own picnic blanket, to be placed at least 2m away from the closest participating member

2) Bring their own masks and plastic gloves, should they deem them necessary

3) Maintain an appropriate physical distance with other participating members at all times

3E commits to:

1) Providing hand sanitizer when necessary

2) Enforcing physical distancing measures

3) Using appropriate sanitation for any refreshments that may be provided (individually wrapped, hermetically sealed, distributed singularly)

We look forward to seeing you there!
