“The Italian Cultural Institute is proud to host an evening with Italian Author Beppe Severgnini, who will present his book, “Ciao, America” in the Sala Rossellini on Thursday, June 13th, 2002 at 7 pm.”
Nancy at the Italian Cultural Institute in Westwood. We went to one of those Writer On The Road Book Tour presentations. The author did take visible joy in pointing out that really, only the Americans arrived on time and for their sake we might as well start (a half hour past starting time) and we’ll just let the rest of the Italians find a seat as they show up. Italians can do this because they are gorgeous.
