with playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker

journalist and broadcaster Robin Lustig

writer and cook Kate Young

and novelist Jonathan Gibbs

Hosted by Rosie Goldsmith


Love Elena Ferrante? Don’t know Elena Ferrante? Want to find out? Whether you are a fevered fan of the Neapolitan Quartet or you would like an introduction to the seething emotional landscape of Ferrante’s Naples, this is the event for you.

Jonathan Gibbs, Robin Lustig and Timberlake Wertenbaker will read their favourite passages from the books of Elena Ferrante, books which have captivated readers far beyond her native Italy since she published Troubling Love in 1992 – and led Time magazine to name her one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Join them to celebrate the release of the latest translations of her books: Frantumaglia: A Writer’s Journey and the children’s story The Beach at Night.

There will be Italian wine and nibbles – and one or two surprises!
