Edinburgh Bookshop Speakeasy: Anne Pia

  • The Edinburgh Bookshop 219 Bruntsfield Place Edinburgh, Scotland, EH10 4DH United Kingdom (map)

Winner of the Premio Flaiano di Italianistica 2018 prize,  Anne Pia reads at the popular Speakeasy at The Edinburgh Bookshop.

Where do I truly belong? This is the question Anne Pia continually asked of herself growing up in the Italian-Scots community of post-World War II Edinburgh. Language of My Choosing, her candid, vibrant memoir shares her struggle to bridge the gap between a traditional immigrant way of life and attaining her goal of becoming an independent-minded professional woman.

Anne Pia's debut poetry collection Transitory explores the ongoing state of change that we all inhabit. These intimate, elegant poems expose the impact of ourselves on the world, and the world on ourselves, touching on issues of identity, belonging and otherness with honesty and tenderness.

Admission is free and all are welcome. Information will become available on the Edinburgh Bookshop website soon.
