Event: Italy Book Tour
I will be on book tour in Italy May 21-26 to promote sette peccati necessari: manifesto contro il patriarcato. the Italian edition of The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls. I am thrilled that independent feminist press Le Plurali are my publishers and grateful to Igiaba Scego for writing the forward and to Beatrice Gnassi for translating my book into Italian.
Thanks also to Amnesty International Italia for co-sponsoring my tour.
I will be going to Turin, Milan, Bologna, Pisa, Florence, Naples, and Rome.
If you are in Italy, I hope you will come to say hello!
If you have friends in Italy, please send them this post and encourage them to come.
