This month at Rizzoli Bookstore we are excited to be celebrating the pride and resilience of our LGBTQ+ community. Pride has long commemorated the 1969 Stonewall demonstrations in NYC, against anti-LGBTQIA+ discrimination. It’s a celebration of LGBTQ+ individuals that has expanded into a month-long celebration of reflection, education, diversity, visibility, inclusivity, and acceptance, into the common goal of equality for all. We honor authenticity and the freedom to be one's true self, free of societal boundaries or discrimination. We recognize those who have trailblazed through the fight for these freedoms. 


This pride we want to highlight the voices of writers, poets, activists, and authors who helped to shape the narrative of our world, and actively pushed against these barriers to carve out a literary space for queer stories. 

We invite you to visit us at Rizzoli Bookstore, to view and shop this year's June “Pride” window, featuring a bookseller curated collection of new LGBTQ+ titles!


New Queer Photography by Bemnjamin Wolbergs is an exciting volume of a new generation of queer photographers, breaking the boundries of sexuality and imposed societal taboos. Shining the light on trans identities, exploring the expansion of gender into the non-binary expression, and all together creating an immersive look at photographic works of more than 40+ LGBTQ+ photographers. 

Candy Book of Transversal Creativity: The Best of Candy Magazine By Luis Venegas, for the past decade Candy Magazine creative director Luis Venegas, has captured the transversal identity through it’s fashion editorials. Through  joyous and vibrant pages of this book, Candy celebrates it’s most incendiary trans, and queer creators, models, stylists, makeup artists, celebrities and photographers, all together in a visually rich volume. 


From an archival perspective, Tom of Finland: Made in Germany exudes the confident sexualtity that helped shape gay iconography in the 20th century. Highlighting his roots in Hamburg, that changed the course of his career forever, where some of the most iconic of his sketches were drawn and exhibited, shifting his early comic works into triumphant art pieces. It led to further milestones in Tom’s artistic journey and this book is it’s testament. A comprehensive and in-depth look into the art and earliest exhibitions that made Touk Laaksonen, Tom of Finland. 

Although we celebrate this year with a new perspective of virtual events, and social distancing, this year's “Pride March” continues on June 27th in New York City. We hope to see you there!

EVENT PROMOTED BY IICNY: Gianrico Carofiglio in conversation with Sheldon Zenner, a former federal prosecutor and a defense attorney. They will discuss Carofiglio's new novel as well as his career path from anti-Mafia prosecutor to full-time writer.

Join IICNY for a stimulating and lively conversation as we cross the globe --- Gianrico Carofiglio will join from Italy and Sheldon Zenner from Chicago --- to discuss The Measure of Time, Carofiglio's inspiration and writing life, and an inside look at the intricacies of the Italian justice system from two brilliant legal minds.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED

The Measure of Time is the latest book in Carfofiglio's Guido Guerrieri crime series (just published Spring 2021). It is set in the port city of Bari in Southern Italy. Against his own instincts, Guerrieri takes on an appeal against what looks like an unassailable murder conviction. The alleged perpetrator is the son of a former lover, Lorenza, who he met in 1987 when he had just graduated law school. The novel is both a thriller and a compassionate meditation about the ravages of time, as Guerrieri looks back on his life while investigating and forming a proper defense for his client.

When published in Italy, The Measure of Time remained at the top of the bestseller list for months, and was shortlisted for the 2020 STREGA prize, Italy’s most prestigious literary award. The veracity of Carofiglio’s work is rooted in his past as an anti-Mafia prosecutor in Southern Italy where he prosecuted cases of corruption, organized crime and human trafficking. Carofiglio seasons his plots with enough philosophical spice to satisfy readers who want more from crime fiction than the usual legal thriller rollercoaster. He neatly switches between twist-packed plot-development, well-salted scenic or culinary interludes and reflections on his love life. With the Guido Guerrieri crime series, Carofiglio also deftly contemplates the life of the lawyer and the hard compromises integral in any system of criminal justice.

Gianrico Carofiglio is an award-winning, best-selling novelist. Born in Bari in 1961, he worked for years as a prosecutor specializing in organized crime. He was appointed advisor of the anti-Mafia committee in the Italian parliament in 2007 and served as a senator from 2008 to 2013. Carofiglio is best known for the Guido Guerrieri crime series: Involuntary Witness, A Walk in the Dark, Reasonable Doubts, Temporary Perfections, A Fine Line and now The Measure of Time, all published by Bitter Lemon Press. Two books in the series were made into films for Italian television. Carofiglio’s books have sold five million copies in Italy and have been translated into twenty-four languages worldwide.

Carofiglio's books are transalted into English by Howard Curtis. 

Sheldon Zenner is a lawyer who draws on 40 years of combined experience as a federal prosecutor and defense attorney, and who has overseen high-stakes government and internal investigations, regulatory proceedings, all phases of criminal matters and related civil litigation globally. The foundation of Sheldon's white-collar defense practice at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, is his experience as an assistant US attorney in Chicago, where the firm is based. Katten is a full-service law firm with nearly 700 attorneys in locations across the United States and in London and Shanghai. 

Event organized by the ICI-NY, in collaboration with the ICI-London and Bitter Lemon Press

LESSICO FAMIGLIARE -  RIZZOLI'S INTERNATIONAL SERIES

Incontri in Italiano

Lessico Famigliare e' la nuova serie di incontri con autrici e autori italiani a cura di Livia Senic-Matuglia per Rizzoli Bookstore NYC.

La libreria Rizzoli di NY, fondata nel 1964, rappresenta da sempre un punto di incontro di cultura internazionale. Questa serie di conversazioni letterarie si rivolge a tutti gli amanti della lingua e cultura italiane.

La serie iniziata nel mese di Marzo continua con un fitto programma di incontri per il mese di Aprile. Incontreremo Serena Dandini, Giuseppe Catozzella, Michela Murgia, Rula Jebreal, Teresa Ciabatti e Giulia Caminito. Un viaggio nella cultura e lingua italiane attraverso le parole di autori e autrici del nostro tempo.

“Noi siamo cinque fratelli. Abitiamo in città diverse, alcuni di noi stanno all'estero: e non ci scriviamo spesso. Quando c'incontriamo, possiamo essere, l'uno con l'altro, indifferenti o distratti. Ma basta, fra noi, una parola. Basta una parola, una frase: una di quelle frasi antiche, sentite e ripetute infinite volte, nel tempo della nostra infanzia. [...] Quelle frasi sono il nostro latino, il vocabolario dei nostri giorni andati, sono come i geroglifici egiziani o degli assiro-babilonesi, la testimonianza d'un nucleo vitale che ha cessato di esistere, ma che sopravvive nei suoi testi, salvati dalla furia delle acque, dalla corrosione del tempo. Quelle frasi sono il fondamento della nostra unità familiare, che sussisterà finché saremo al mondo, ricreandosi e risuscitando nei punti più diversi della terra.” 
― Natalia Ginzburg, Lessico famigliare

Agli incontri che si terranno online (instagram live e/o zoom) parteciperanno alcuni tra i piu' noti autori di narrativa e saggistica italiana.

La libreria Rizzoli di NY, fondata nel 1964, rappresenta da sempre un punto di incontro di cultura internazionale. Questa serie di conversazioni letterarie si rivolge a tutti gli amanti della lingua e cultura italiane.

La serie inizia nel mese di Marzo con la presentazione dell'ultimo libro di Aldo Cazzullo, A Riveder Le Stelle, in omaggio all'anniversario dei 700 anni dalla morte di Dante. Iniziamo con il tributo al poeta considerato il padre della lingua italiana perche' crediamo che proprio attraverso la lingua, ciascuno di noi disegni la propria identita'. Da questo spunto prende il titolo questa serie "Lessico Famigliare" , riferendosi al capolavoro di Natalia Ginzburg, Premio Strega 1963, costruito sulla complessita' dei legami famigliari che sono anche legami linguistici.

“Noi siamo cinque fratelli. Abitiamo in città diverse, alcuni di noi stanno all'estero: e non ci scriviamo spesso. Quando c'incontriamo, possiamo essere, l'uno con l'altro, indifferenti o distratti. Ma basta, fra noi, una parola. Basta una parola, una frase: una di quelle frasi antiche, sentite e ripetute infinite volte, nel tempo della nostra infanzia.

The events will be online (instagram live and / or zoom) and  will be attended by some of the most famous authors of Italian fiction and non-fiction.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26 AT 6 PM ET

Author Farah Nayeri will be in conversation with fellow arts journalist Linda Yablonsky about her book Takedown: Art and Power in the Digital Age, which grapples with the most difficult questions of power, money, and identity facing the art world today.

ABOUT THE BOOK

For centuries, art censorship has been a top-down phenomenon—kings, popes, and one-party states decided what was considered obscene, blasphemous, or politically deviant in art.

Today, censorship can also happen from the bottom-up, thanks to calls to action from organizers and social media campaigns. Artists and artworks are routinely taken to task for their insensitivity. In this new world order, artists, critics, philanthropists, galleries and museums alike are recalibrating their efforts to increase the visibility of marginalized voices and respond to the people’s demands for better ethics in art.

But what should we, the people, do with this newfound power?

With exclusive interviews with Nan Goldin, Sam Durant, Faith Ringgold, and others, Nayeri tackles wide-ranging issues including sex, religion, gender, ethics, animal rights, and race.

By asking and answering questions such as: Who gets to make art and who owns it? How do we correct the inequities of the past? What does authenticity, exploitation, and appropriation mean in art?, Takedown provides the necessary tools to navigate the art world.

Redenzione di [Chiara Marchelli]


SUNDAY, DECEMBER 20TH

5 PM EST


Please join us for a virtual event with italian writer Chiara Marchelli presenting her last book "Redenzione" 
We will be presenting this event virtually using Zoom. 


“Sembravano grida. E un rumore basso, pauroso.

Mi sono convinta che fosse il respiro della volpe,
il verso che le usciva dai denti azzannando il collo delle galline.
Mia zia diceva che non era possibile e che me l’ero sognato, ma me lo ricordo ancora oggi, chiarissimo: come un rimbombo. Quando mi mandavano in chiesa e il prete parlava del male, io pensavo sempre a quel rumore lì. Come l’acqua sottoterra, hai presente?”

 

Dopo La memoria della cenere, Chiara Marchelli torna con un romanzo costruito con rara maestria, un’indagine poliziesca intrecciata alle radici storiche della follia. In un racconto mozzafiato, dove il passato sboccia nel presen- te come un fiore velenoso, l’autrice si immerge nella fragilità dell’animo femminile, che nella fame di libertà e perfezione ha sempre cercato il riscatto dall’infelicità e dal male inflitto e subìto.

Chiara Marchelli è nata ad Aosta e si è laureata in Lingue Orientali a Venezia. È autrice di romanzi, una raccolta di racconti e un saggio su New York, la città dove vive. Insegna Letteratura Contemporanea, Traduzione e Italiano alla New York University e Scrittura alla Scuola Holden. Nel 2017 ha pubblicato Le notti blu (Giulio Perrone Editore), selezionato tra i dodici finalisti del Premio Strega. Nel 2019 NNE ha pubblicato il suo romanzo La memoria della cenere.
