Sicilian Writers Read @ Calandra, April 17

(Apr 11, 2012)

The follow-up volume to the successful 2004 anthology, Sweet Lemons 2: International Writings with a Sicilian Accent (Legas, 2010) features a diverse array of poetry and prose by writers of Sicilian background. While the first volume focused on contributors from North America, Sweet Lemons 2 expands to include voices from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, as well as Sicilian writers in translation, forming a global conversation on the complexities and contradictions of Sicilian culture. The reading features book contributors Salvatore Ala, Gil Fagiani, Ed Fiorelli, Marisa Frasca, Daniela Gioseffi, Maria Lisella, Frank Polizzi, and Maria Terrone, editors Venera Fazio and Delia De Santis, and publisher Gaetano Cipolla.
