In Speaking Italian Like a Canadian (third-place winning story in the 2007 Accenti Writing Contest), Helen McLean reveals her life-long love-affair with the Italian language. Touch and Go, by author and world traveller Nico Bignami, tells the story of a Chinese boy and an Italian Canadian civilian pilot living in China after the Tiananmen Square massacre. Delia De Santis takes a satirical look at reverse immigration and identity in her story The Last Frozen Dinner, and Ilona Martonfi borrows a line from Manzoni – but with a twist – in her poem I promessi Sposi.
Take a look at Accenti’s Book Section, compiled by Carolyne Van Der Meer. There are plenty of titles to choose from for spring and summer reading. And now that this winter’s record-breaking snow has melted, it is a good time to go outside and take in the sights and scents of spring. Enjoy!
