Michela Navarria, a native Italian speaker, leads a literary group in which we read Italian literature and then share in Italian conversation! We will meet via Zoom on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00pm. You are welcome to join anytime! You do not have to be at every session.

We have chosen to focus on Andrea Camilleri, and there is a lot of material on TV to refer to: (yes!) the famous "Commissario Montalbano" 😀 If you are a big fan of mysteries and of Sicily, this is definitely an intriguing choice and full of elements to discuss.

Our current book is: Il ladro di merendine. All participants will need to purchase the book but you can start with the TV series!

Follow this link below to purchase the book on Amazon.

More about Michela:

Michela grew up in southern Italian speaking Switzerland, traveled around the world and also graduated in Bologna in Arts, Music and Theatre, then started her journey into cultural management, before moving the the US with her husband and daughter.

Michela è crescita nella Svizzera italiana, ha viaggiato e si è laureata all’università di Bologna in Discipline delle Arti, della Musica e dello Spettacolo (DAMS). Ha inoltre intrapreso un corso in Cultural Management, prima di trasferirsi in USA con suo marito e sua figlia.

As a cultural promoter she feels almost obliged to keep her origins, her language and her culture alive, hoping that this passion can be happily shared through the Italian Literary Group.

Come promotrice culturale si sente quasi in obbligo di mantenere viva le sue origini, la sua lingua e la sua cultura, e spera tanto che questa passione si possa condividere in armonia e tramite il piacere della lettura di gruppo, o i cosiddetti Incontri Letterari.
