BOOKS WE LOVE

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many libraries have temporarily closed. So, we are turning our attention to books. You can still order books online or maybe browse your own bookshelves at home to find books you never thought you’d have the time to read.

This month, Patricia Vaccarino writes about the Biblioteca Italiana Seattle (BIS), a library of books, film and music in the Italian language that is hosted by the Il Punto! Italian Cultural Center in Seattle.
