Come celebrate the release of Elena Ferrante’s THE STORY OF THE LOST CHILD, the final book in her monumental Neapolitan series. A true literary event, we will honor the elusive and enigmatic Ferrante with Italian food, drinks, music, and readings—and who knows? Maybe she’ll be in attendance! After all, nobody knows what she looks like… (Spoiler Alert: She won’t be in attendance.)

Regardless, critic James Wood calls Ferrante, “Italy’s best-known least-known contemporary writers,” and her books are remarkable for their lucidity and bravery. There’s never a bad time to begin reading any of her remarkable novels, all which delve into modern life, relationships, and family without flinching. Join us and see what all the #FerranteFever is about!
