Special Event for Members*

In past years on a Sunday in May most bookstores remained open in Italy to encourage the sale of books and support and promote its writers. This initiative was called “Celebrazione dei Libri” (Book Celebration). In line with the spirit of this movement, IAWA – The Italian-American Writers Association, in collaboration with Dr. Giuseppe Perricone, Modern Language Department, are launching a “Sagra Del Libro” (Book Festival) on Friday, April 13 from 6 to 9 pm in the South Lounge of Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus, 113 West 60th Street (corner of Columbus Avenue) on the Mezzanine Floor. Admission is free to all.
All members of IAWA are invited to showcase their published books. There is no charge for individual authors but they must be members of IAWA. Non members wishing to participate must join IAWA first. Tables will be set up for the display of books and promotional materials, and authors will be available to speak with attendees and sign books. Also lively presentations consisting of readings and panel discussions by the authors will make for a fascinating evening of celebrating our Italian-American writers. Light refreshments will be served.
