Lucciole in palmo alla notte

Just released, Sara Fruner has a new collection in Italian, "Lucciole in palmo alla notte."

"Le lucciole sono creature della dualità. Fatte di luce, sprofondano nella tenebra."

Learn more here: https://supernovaedizioni.it/catalogo/lucciole-palmo-alla-notte

Le lucciole sono creature della dualità. Fatte di luce, sprofondano nella tenebra. Portano in sé il giorno, ma sono visibili solo di notte, e più il buio è pesto, più vivide spiccano. Sono preziosi correlativi oggettivi dell’uomo, essere fragile, circondato–braccato– esistenzialmente dall...

Brooklyn: Oh, what a night!

Thanks to all who came out on Tuesday to support our book gig at BierWax. It was big fun meeting new friends, hanging with humans I adore and reading with Maria Giura, poet and Bordighera Press writer.

The beer and stories flowed free and wild!

The New York Times calls BierWax a local Brooklyn bar where “warmth can be found” so come on over tomorrow night and let’s get cozy! Happy to be joining Brooklyn-born poet and fellow Bordighera Press author, Maria Giura, for a night of sharing stories, sips of beer and glances at the over 5,000 vinyl records on site. ‘Hope you can make it! (And shout-out to Leland and Jenn for the intro.)

April 2019 Exemplars: Poetry Reviews by Grace Cavalieri from Washington Independent Review of Books features "Missing Madonnas" by Gil Fagiani!

"His poems teach us to notice, to look on every chain-link fence for the lock; to value the original language of our families; to remember the mores that raised him. These poems are stories — showing the way Fagiani saw the world: funny, unpredictable, sometimes harsh, and also kind."

Michelle Messina Reale, Italian-American Poet

There was a period of time, years ago, when I received a lot ot rejections for poems that I wrote that expressed my experience of life, my truth, the lens through which I viewed the world. Many of those rejections contained feedback that said things like "Not quite right for us," or "Not a good fit for our aesthetic." I knew exactly what they all meant when one editor, whose publication I revere to this day, but never managed to get published in said "These are too "accented. You write with an accent. Not good for us , but wishing you luck elsewhere." I printed that rejection out and put it in my writing journal. I was estatic. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I wanted to write. We have to be true to our subject matter, we have to heed the call to what is calling to us. Yes, I write with an accent and most of my work will reveal layers of what that really means. Juxtaposing words in Italian with poems written in English exemplifies the two worlds I straddle and try to make sense of. Birds of Sicily and Season of Subraction are the best examples of this. My "accented" writing will not be for everyone, but luckily I have developed my own relationship with my work and it gives me great (accented!) joy.

“'We want to formally institutionalize [Bordighera Press],' Gardaphé stated. He further explained that this would then allow them 'to find young professionals who are interested in the field [and] who would be happy to take it over.' Tamburri added, 'It will happen to a greater extent when there are more graduate programs in Italian-American studies, from [which] the featured editors and scholars will come.'”

“In her debut essay collection, Maria Terrone—a Queens native born to first-generation Italian-American parents—brings to life memories and musings on topics like food, family, fear, and one New Yorker’s journey in the face of them all.

In this collection, she creatively navigates the spaces between her roots and her future, between who she is expected to be and who she discovers she can be.

This collection arrives at precisely a time when America’s interest in immigration is piqued....(it) has the potential to spark conversations on the many ways people find themselves at home in the ever-changing new world that is America.” Kait Burrier reviews Maria Terrone’s At Home in the New World

Kento's #tenyearchallenge!

#tenyearschallenge 10 anni fa usciva il mio primo disco solista, Sacco o Vanzetti. Segna la fine di un periodo di dubbi artistici e personali, ma soprattutto segna un inizio: l'inizio di un viaggio senza fine verso la conoscenza, l'empatia, la rivoluzione. Mentre sono in cammino mi sento di dire soltanto una cosa: credete nell'arte che ci salva la vita, nella musica, nel futuro. "La realtà è sbagliata, i sogni sono reali". E grazie a chi mi è stato sempre accanto, voi sapete chi siete.
