Continuing the long-running Discovering Italy series, Karen Haid, award-winning author of Calabria: The Other Italy, will give a presentation on the Italian region known as Basilicata which forms the unassuming instep of the Italian boot. It is the region where many Italian immigrants lived before moving to the U.S., Canada or Australia.
Basilicata is known for its magnificent natural beauty, rich culture and longstanding traditions. It maintains an old-world charm and authenticity into the 21stcentury. Karen has just finished writing the book, Basilicata: Authentic Italy, which captures the essence of this lesser-known Southern Italian region. She will share photos and stories from her experiences in the region and what to expect from the book.
This event will be launched using Zoom.
We hope you enjoy! This event is not hosted by Las Vegas-Clark County Library District and therefore may be updated, changed, or canceled with little or no notice.
