A Celebration of Time Ages in a Hurry at Community Bookstore
April 30, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for a celebration of Antonio Tabucchi’s Time Ages in a Hurry at Community Bookstore in Brooklyn, Thursday, April 30 @ 7 pm! The evening will feature a conversation with author Lynne Sharon Schwartz and translators Martha Cooley and Antonio Romani.
Antonio Tabucchi (1943-2012) is one of Italy’s most original and admired writers. The nine stories in Time Ages in a Hurry are imaginative inquiries into things hidden or disguised. Each protagonist must confront phantoms from the past, misguided beliefs, and puzzles of identity.
Martha Cooley is the author of two novels, The Archivist and Thirty-Three Swoons. Her works of short fiction, poetry, and essays have appeared in PEN America, The Common, A Public Space, and others. She has translated numerous poems by Italian poet Giampiero Neri, and she served as Judge of the Poetry in Translation Prize at the PEN American Center in 2011. Cooley is currently a professor of English at the University of Adelphi and teaches writing in the Bennington Writing Seminars MFA program.
Antonio Romani‘s translations of poems by Italian poet Giampiero Neri have been published in AGNI, Atlanta Review, PEN America, A Public Space, and others. He formerly taught Italian Literature and History in two high schools in Cremona and was the owner and manager of two bookstores. He now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
