AVANTI POPOLO: Italian-American Writers Sail Beyond Columbus
edited by the Italian American Political Solidarity Club
published by Manic D Press

Monday, October 13, 2008, 7 pm
City Lights Bookstore
Columbus Ave (+ Broadway), SF
FREE - All ages!

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue, got lost on his way to
India, and kicked off a genocide of the native people of Las
Americas. In the 500+ years since then, the forces of conquest
have successfully wedded the Columbus story with Italian-American
identity. This erases the histories of Italian-Americans who
have stood up for social justice and fought hard for the liberation of
humanity.

In this groundbreaking collection of poetry and prose, Italian
American writers celebrate their hidden history in a literary
tribute to fighting social injustice. On Columbus Day, instead
of celebrating conquest, these poets and writers acknowledge
those who stood up for justice and have fought for the rights of
all.
