Jonathan Galassi, novelist, publisher and distinguished translator of Giacomo Leopardi and Eugenio Montale, will appear in conversation with André Naffis-Sahely to discuss his lifelong dedication to Italian poetry and his new translations of Primo Levi’s poems, which were featured in Liveright’s monumental Complete Works of Primo Levi.
