Die Lesegruppe „Leggere leggero“ organisiert Treffen mehr oder weniger regelmäßig in Frankfurt in der Denkbar. Sie ist offen für alle die viel Spaß am Lesen haben, und daher nicht nur für Italiener.
Il gruppo di lettura „Leggere leggero“ organizza incontri a scadenze più o meno regolari al Denkbar di Francoforte aperto a tutti e dunque non solo a Italiani che amano la lettura e desiderano parlarne e confrontarsi sui libri che hanno letto o stanno leggendo.
Il primo incontro si terrà alle ore 16 al Denkbar e il primo libro sarà „La fredda estate“ di Gianrico Carofiglio.
L’estate fredda (The Cold Summer)
A novel, Einaudi Stile Libero, October 2016, 349 pages
“Carofiglio raises the standard for crime fiction. His stories are both literary and gritty.”
“The Cold Summer (L’estate fredda) is written very close to the events of that chilly, dangerous season, and marks, Carofiglio tells Publishing Perspectives, one of the few times he has found himself interested in delivering a message with his fiction: organized crime is not inevitable, not unbeatable.”

Their sacrifice became a symbol of heroism in everyday civil life. read more…
