Book Club

  The ICC Book Club was established for the purpose of improving reading, pronunciation and listening skills in Italian. In our meetings, we read and discuss Italian classics and modern literature in a relaxed atmosphere. While all participants take turns reading aloud, the group leader ensures that everyone has a grasp of the meaning and conducts the discussion in Italian as much as possible. Previous books included Pinocchio, I Promessi Sposi, and Inspector Montalbano‚Äôs novels, to name a few.

Check our website regularly to find out about the next Book Club meeting and the appropriate reading level.  ICC members and non-members are welcome.
