      Book Club is back!  Are you interested in improving your reading, pronunciation, and listening skills in Italian?  We would like to encourage you to become part of our Book Club.

    Our Book Club will welcome ICC members who are upper intermediate to advanced speakers of Italian.  Our first meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 13, from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This is a 5 week course, and there will be no class the week of July 4th. We will gather in Suite 502 of the Hennepin Center for the Arts building, and the Book Club will be facilitated by native Italian, Elisabetta Re.  We will read and discuss Italian literature in a relaxed atmosphere.

    We will begin reading "La casa nel bosco". The book can be purchased through Amazon using this link: 

    A memoir written by two brothers, Giarrico, the writer, and Francesco, the architect and film director. It weaves lost friendships, stolen lovers, old cartoons and ricotta cakes. A family collection of recipes, real and methaphorical, spanning from childhood through adolescence to the adult life of the two brothers.

    Giarrico and Francesco end up in spending time together when their old vacation home, the house in the woods, is sold.  While moving out the few things left in the house, they embark on a journey back to their past. Every object, smell, and taste becomes the springboard for a memory and a moment of sharing.      

    Please contact Peggy at with questions.

    Please note:  Book Club must be cancelled 72 hours in advance of the start date to receive a refund, less an administrative fee.
