Sunday Italian Book Club – Amara Lakhous

Jun 28, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Order tickets via Eventbrite:

This month we are reading

“Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio” (“Scontro di civiltà per un ascensore a Piazza Vittorio”) by Amara Lakhous.

A murder has occurred in an apartment building in Rome and everyone’s pointing the finger. But which neighbor is guilty? A detective novel, a bittersweet comedy, and a surprise bestseller portraying today’s multicultural Italy.

Italian or english copies of the book are available online for purchase. Our discussion will be in Italian or English, depending on the participants. Your moderator will be Dr. Gabrielle Orsi, PhD in Italian from Columbia University.


BIS and Il Punto! created a book club where people can meet and discuss about books written by Italian authors or books with a topic connected to Italy. We already planned a few dates and suggesting some books. You can find some of the titles at the BIS library. Usually those titles are also available on amazon.it, amazon.com, rizzoliusa.com, deastore.com.

The book club is open to everybody, but we suggest to become a member of Il Punto! Italian Cultural Center to stay updated on events and take advantage of all the benefits associated.

Please let us know if you would like to attend and your language preference. You can write us to bibliotecaitalianaseattle@gmail.com or reserve your free ticket on eventbrite!
