Hanna Suni, from the independent feminist publishing house Le plurali, will present their latest publication, the first Italian translation of Maya Angelou's Mom & Me & Mom.
The work is a moving memoir from the great African-American writer and poet that tells her life through the lens of her relationship with her mother, Vivian Baxter. If Angelou led a life that seemed like a hundred lives (single mother at the age of 17, cook, dancer, intellectual and civil rights activist with Martin Luther King), her mother is no different. The memoir explores the relationship between a mother and a daughter based on sisterhood, forgiveness, and mutual respect.
Le Plurali publishes nonfiction and fiction books written exclusively by female authors. They also translate books that can't be found in Italian and republish texts that can no longer be found in bookstores. They feature independent, feminist voices and celebrate the words and incredible stories of heroines of the present and past.
Ms Suni will read from both the English and Italian versions and discuss the work of translation and the world of independent publishing.
