Meet the author Nino Famą

Mar 20/14

Nino Famą, Ph.D.

Professor Emeritus in Latin American literature at the University of Waterloo, Nino Famą has written books of literary criticism, many articles and essays published in specialized journals.

More recently, Nino Famą has dedicated himself to writing works of fiction. His latest novel L’oceano nel pozzo (Pellegrini) was published in 2013, following  another successful novel, La stanza segreta (Sciascia, 2004). The latter was translated into English as The Secret Room (Legas, 2008). These are only his latest literary accomplishments.

Come meet the author!

Ų  Nino Famą’s novels challenge formulaic literary boundaries and definitions.

Ų  His work offers an intriguing fusion of North-American themes - alienation, sense of loss in a consumeristic society - with cultural and stylistic connotations originating from Italian, Sicilian experiences and Latin American literary influences.

When:   Thursday, March 20, 2014

Where: Wilfrid Laurier University
Bricker Academic Building, BA209

Time:     7pm - 8pm

Ų  The event is organized by Italian Studies in the Department of Languages and Literatures and sponsored by the Dean’s Office, Faculty of Arts.
