Le Tre del Mattino, Gianrico Carofiglio’s most recent novel, is a departure from mafia related crimes and investigations. Rather, it portrays the resolution of a previously distant and troubled father-son relationship, in the unexpected backdrop of a city outside of Italy. We will read and discuss this book in Italian.

Kathy Freschi has been teaching Italian for over 40 years at UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkeley and College of Marin. In 1987, she founded the Credit Program of Italian at College of Marin, for which she was awarded La Stella d’Italia by the Republic of Italy.
