Our Program Chair, Cecilia Paul, is in contact with a potential speaker - Robert Thomson - for our first Italian meeting of the 2019-2020 Program Year in September. He is the author of a memoir about a year spent studying Italian in Italy, "Florence, Dante and Me (A Canadian Student Tries to Become Italian for a Year)".
Sig. Thomson lives in Victoria, B.C. and asked whether a Dante member would be willing to billet him for the talk, as happened when he spoke to us about "Dante and Opera" in 2009.
If you're interested or would like more information, please contact Cecilia directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
