Novelist Anne Giardini will be reading from her latest book, Advice for Italian Boys at Vancouver Public Library on Tuesday, January 18, at 7 pm. From the VPL website: “Nicolo Pavone is the middle son in an Italian-Canadian family. His younger brother is a law student on the path to a brilliant career. His older brother is married and hides his secret ambitions. Nicolo still lives at home, saving his money and respecting his parents and his nonna while trying to find his own place in the world. The novel explores the delicate balance of what we are born into and what we eventually become.”

La Biblioteca would not run smoothly without the help of our wonderful volunteers but we are losing these valuable members of staff due to changing life circumstances. We need volunteers to help us to continue to provide a wonderful Italian experience to our members. If you (or someone you know) would like to get some all important volunteer hours, boost your resume and give back to your community please get in touch.
Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or give us a call on 604 430 3337
We will work with your schedule as much as we can but usual shifts are 3 hours long, either 10am - 1pm or 1pm-4pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
It is preferable (but not required) that you speak Italian and have an interest in Italian fiction.
