The wildly popular yet pseudonymous Italian author known as Elena Ferrante is best known for her four-volume Neapolitan Novels series, which follows two girls from Naples who attempt to create lives for themselves within a violent and stultifying culture. Named one of Time magazine's most influential people of 2016, Ferrante now sees her books increasingly adapted for film and television. Writer and Professor of Comparative Literature Sara Marinelli speaks on Ferrante’s narrative world and cultural relevance. Bring your own lunch. FREE
