The Embassy of Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute, the Department of Italian and the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics at Georgetown University invite you to a book presentation by Pulitzer Prize winning writer Jhumpa Lahiri. 

Jhumpa Lahiri is one of the most important voices of American literature. Her debut book, Interpreter of Maladies, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2000, her first novel, The Namesake, became an instant classic, and all her subsequent works gained both critical and popular praise.
