Kelly Link will be at a couple of book festivals in Italy next week thanks to the good people at Donzelli editore — who published Stranger Things Happen in Italian — and the American Embassy there.
But, first, on the morning of Dec. 7th she will teach a class at the SCUOLA HOLDEN (yes, named after that Holden). Then she will read at 18 (6 PM) at the Atrium in Piazza Solferino.
On the 9th at 16 (4 PM) she will read at the Rome Book Fair, being introduced by Riccardo Duranti, her translator, and Alessandro Portelli, a leading Italian scholar of American Literature.
Invites to the readings are below! Wish us luck. It will be scattered showers all week, but we don’t care as it will be 60 degrees and We Will Be in Italy!
Earlier we mentioned that we’d post some PDFs of an interview piece with Kelly from an Italian magazine. At last here they are. Go see for the fabby art. They’re large-ish files but can be downloaded here: Contents page, title page, interview1, interview2.
