On the occasion of the International Women’s Day we want to share with you some of the most amazing contemporary women writers from Sicily, introduced by their books. How many of them do you already know? Some of them won awards and are not been translated yet: we think they deserve to be known more and better by international audiences as well!
Have a look at our gallery and discover more below!
Out of the list we need to mention Dacia Maraini (her mum was Sicilian and she lived in Bagheria, nel Palermo, for some years), Silvana La Spina (her dad was Sicilian, and she lives now in Catania), Maria Messina (if you like Giovanni Verga then you will enjoy her novels) and – of course – Goliarda Sapienza: her “City of Joy” is really unmissable!
