Algerian-Italian Writer Amara Lakhous Is Coming to Notre Dame on Friday, November 6, 2020.
“A small culturally mixed community living in an apartment building in the center of Rome is thrown into disarray when one of the neighbors is murdered. […] Each character takes his or her turn center-stage, recounting his or her story—the dramas of emigration, the daily equivocations of immigration, the fears and misunderstandings of a life spent on society’s margins...”Lakhous will talk with students about his book Scontro di civiltà per un ascensore a Piazza Vittorio (Clash of Civilizations over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio).
