We are fluent speakers of Italian, wanting to keep up or improve our fluency by meeting together once a mnth to read novels aloud to each other - taking turns, of course! It is through reading wonderful contemporary novels in Italian that we become more proficient in speaking, in vocabulary, in use of idiomatic espressions, in syntax, pronunciation. It is a way to keep your Italian on the tip of your tongue, so to speak...No pun intended. And Through reading aloud to each other, we also have food for thought and good conversation, as well as the opportunity to meet and make new friends. We have been meeting once a month on the FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH, from 7:00 - 8:30. We will have our first Meet Up of the new Italian Book Club on Thurs., SEPT 6th. Come to the table nearest the Grand Piano in the ATRIUM of Citicorp bldg, on NE corner of Lexington Ave and 53rd St. (Parking available on the street after 7PM) or take the subway. A food court surrounds the Atrium and subways stop nearby. Please let me know if you will be coming by RSVP on Meet Up.
