Past years on a Sunday in May, bookstores remained open in Italy to support and promote its writers. This initiative was called "Celebrazione dei Libri" (Book Celebration). To continue the spirit of this movement the Italian American Writers Association and
Dr. Giuseppe Perriconeis are sponsoring Sagra Del Libro in New York City.

 IAWA was founded in 1991 to promote,nurture and enhance Italian American expression. It encourages the writing, reading, publication, distribution, translation, and study of Italian American culture. Its aim: create a public forum where the full range of new Italian American literature can be seen and heard. IAWA brings glory to this special, genuine community. Bravo to its readers and writers for honoring its four rules:

I: Express the organization’s practical philosophy. 2:Read one another. 3: Write or be written.
4: Buy our books.

In its 20th year, the Italian Academy Foundation honored IAWA and its founder Prof. Robert Viscusi(Broeklundian Professor and Executive Officer: Wolfe Institute for the Humanities, Brooklyn College)
with the prestigious BRAVO Award. At the Carnegie Hall presentation, rewarded excellence in promoting Italian and Italian-American Culture flourished. IAWA members: writers, editors, publishers, agents, translators, teachers, scholars, poets, novelists, historians, journalists, social scientists, readers of every description and those interested in the progress of Italian American scribes applauded.

The Sagra Book Festival Committee is chaired by Dr. Emelise Aleandri. Artistic Director of Frizzi & Lazzi, The Olde Time Italian- American Music and Theatre Company. Joining her are IAWA Board members: Robert Agnoli, Jessica Femiani and Gil Fagiani.

Others on the board include: Marisa Frasca, Peter Patinella, James Periconi, Amy Barone, Maria Lisella, Nick Matros, Lisa Paolucci and Michael Cirelli.

 IAWA www.iawa.netpublishes the monthly Italian American Writers Association Newsletter .It keeps the international literary community informed of Italian American writing fetes.

Past events included: multilingual readings (Italian/Dialect/English), the Ethnic Encounters series, Italian-American Book Fairs, Italian American poets and writers, literary workshops, performances, lectures and seminars, new book presentations, publications and a wide variety of readings. The immensely successful open mike reading series, co-hosted by Gil Fagiani and Maria Lisella, at the Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, on the second Saturday of every month, has soared in popularity over the last twenty years. Two new readers are featured guests each month and the rest of the evening is open to all.
