This evening is a celebration of the life and the work of Joseph Tusiani. A writer bridging two worlds, Joseph Tusiani is a widely cultured scholar who speaks and writes in four languages. With an introduction by Professor Anthony Tamburri, the evening will consist of a screening of the documentary by Sabrina Digregorio, titled “Finding Joseph Tusiani: The Poet of Two Lands”.
