2021-2022 Alfred F. Mannella and Rose T. Lauria-Mannella Endowed Distinguished Speaker Series Lecture featuring Poet Maria Famà
Please join us virtually on Thursday, April 28, from 2:30-3:45 p.m. for the 2021-2022 Alfred F. Mannella and Rose T. Lauria-Mannella Endowed Distinguished Speaker Series Lecture featuring Poet Maria Famà.

Famà’s talk is titled, “Mining an Italian Heritage for Poems." As a poet of Sicilian descent, she mines the richness of the oral culture that has been passed down by her family of storytellers. Famà writes her poems to preserve family tales, personalities, sufferings, joys, and wisdom for future generations. In her presentation, she will give examples of her poems from her various books and explain how they came into being.

This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, the Italian Studies Program, the Department of English, and the Creative Writing Program, is free and open to the public.
