It will be a week full of interesting meetings that is about to begin! This time you will find me in a box 7 days a week, so I pay a pledge for having a fever and for being closed on Saturday. Of course, if every time I host a presentation despite a high fever then I sell all the books (witnessed by Piero Balzoni who presented How to kill lobsters on Friday) I could think about it and agree with the mercury in the thermometer. Monday 25 January at 20.00 the monthly appointment with the library reading group returns. Group moderated by Federico Tavola, author of the area and now a friend of the box. Which novel are we going to talk about? The Snow Girl by Eowyn Ivey – Einaudi – Translated by Monica Pareschi. There is already a heated discussion about our whats app group. Readers with decidedly conflicting opinions. I am sure it will be a meeting full of ideas. Would you like to join the next reading group? send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org go to the bookstore to buy the chosen book and that’s it! Wednesday 27th I will be at a publisher’s dinner meeting on the occasion of the publication of a new novel. I will then tell you in how many corners I will have hidden myself to go unnoticed and because of my shyness. Friday 29 January at 6.45 pm we will meet Luciano Funetta who will tell us about his novel Dalle Rovine published by Tunué. He will speak with the author Ivano Porpora.
Saturday 30 January at 18.00 Franco Arba will talk to us about his “They say there will be war tomorrow” published by LiberAria. He will speak with the author Davide Sapienza.
Sunday breakfast is tinged with noir. On 31 January at 11.00 Piergiorgio Pulixi comes to visit us with his “Forever”. Interventions with the author Silvana Battaglioli.
And let’s finish on Sunday with a trip to Writers ! at 3.30 pm I will be a guest, together with other booksellers, of Chicca Gagliardo. We will talk about books, independent bookstores, the bookstores of our dreams, about those ideals of what we can do and what we can do without. I’m pretty upset, but you know how I am. You say that having a shot of wine at 3pm, just to relax, is too early?
They didn’t create the eighth day of the week, but rest assured that if only it existed I would have set up a meeting in the bookstore. Good week everyone.
