A Ferrante Fête


If you haven’t heard of City of Asylum – https://cityofasylum.org/ – you should check this organization out! I have visited their physical location in Pittsburgh, PA — such a cool place. This event celebrating Elena Ferrante made me think of y’all so I’m putting a link to the event here:

  1. Thanks for the link. I listened to the replay and loved the conversation. I wish we could all have a cup of tea or glass of wine with Ann Goldstein. Ferrante has moved up to the top of my to-read list.

    1. I tuned in and enjoyed it, too, Barbara. It was lovely to hear how her journey to translation started and continued. Pretty dazzling to start learning Italian at the age of 31. Her brain must be especially plastic.

      1. I’m glad you enjoyed it! I missed it, though with the weather getting colder I do find myself feeling closer to finishing off the last 2 books in the Neapolitan series — and then this new one sounds worth a read.

        Though Ben Lerner’s book is awaiting me for curbside pickup at the library…

  2. Thank you for the link! I will definitely give a listen– the webcast at ModPo this last week was about mishearing / translation — feels congruent!
