Dante at the Calder Bookshop

I hope you will be able to join us for an exceptional Thursday night reading at the Calder Bookshop tomorrow. Prize-winning translator JG Nichols – who has translated some of the greatest masterpieces of Italian literature in recent years, from Petrarch to D'Annunzio, and from Foscolo to Verga – will talk about his translation of Dante's lyrics (the only edition currently available in the English language) and read some of his translations.

I will read a selection of Dante's lyrics in Italian and join the discussion. Tickets are £6/4, for which you also get a free glass of wine and a unique reading experience. Please reserve your seat by calling 020 7620 2900 or email

Here's a link with some further information about the book:

I hope to see you tomorrow night!
