Totally stoked that the award-winning TV and radio producer, director and writer, Karl Nerenberg, will speak at my Ottawa CAZZAROLA! event Tues Dec 3rd, at The Avant-Garde Bar, 135 Besserer, 7pm.
He made the amazing film, ‘Never Come Back’ about the Roma community in Canada.
Nov. 15, 2013 – CAZZAROLA! played to an overflow crowd at Montreal’s Casa del Popolo!
“I really wanted to let you know how much I loved reading Cazzarola! I have a hard time finding fiction that can sustain my attention, but I soared through your book in three days while recovering from adventures in dentistry….
Jay Miller, Nov 14, 2013. “Norman Nawrocki is a poet, musician and anarchist activist currently travelling across Canada to launch his new novel Cazzarola!, the 130-year story of an Italian family and the latest generation of Romani refugees living in Italy today. It’s a novel that deals with the development of extreme right-wing policies in Italy which are oppressing the minority, along with themes of gender, equality, and making it as an artist.
His launch includes a live performance that dramatizes the book, accompanied by the music of book’s musical soundtrack (available on CD), and the occasional opportunity to speak with Italians and Italo-Canadians about the stories touched on in the book as well as those from their own lives.”
The Saskatoon Airport welcome: – 14 degrees with snow.
The cutest rad bookstore in Canada, Turning the Tide, housed in one of the 20 oldest buildings in the city, home once to a family of 10, home later to the 1970s hippy rock band, Humphry and the Dumptrucks.
