Italian Book Club | Casa Italiana Zerilli / Marimò

Italian Book Club

Casa Italiana hosts this book club, led by Grazia Montesi, that meets once a month to discuss contemporary Italian books in Italian. The Club is open to anyone and its purpose is to offer the possibility to practice the Italian language. Everybody is encouraged to speak. The group suggests the books, usually by contemporary Italian authors, that reflect the changes that have taken place with time in the language and customs. The discussion is informal.

Participation is free. 

Please note: Casa Italiana hosts but does not interfere with the reading choices of the Italian Book Club. For all information, please contact the Book Club's leader, Grazia Montesi, at
