Until 1825, the exquisite Caribbean island of Curaçao had the largest, wealthiest, and best-educated Jewish community in the Americas. Join Laura Leibman, professor of English & humanities, and a small group of travelers for this in-depth examination of Curaçao’s historical legacy.  Part of the Dutch Antilles and located three hours south of Miami, this island is distinguished by a rich and layered history, fascinating material culture, and picturesque and natural beauty. The capital, Willemstad, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the small island boasts wonderful diving, birding, and hiking opportunities as well. What better way to start off 2016?

“My Brilliant Friend,” by Elena Ferrante
Location to be announced. 

In anticipation of this meeting, some people may wish to read “The Italians,” by John Hooper.

 “My Brilliant Friend” is the first of three novels that focus on the friendship of two women (two girls in “My Brilliant Friend”) born in poor families in Naples in the middle of the 20th century.  Rachel Donadio, writing in the New York Review of Books, recently called Elena Ferrante “the most powerful and enigmatic writer to emerge from contemporary Italy.”  Here is a link to her article:

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2014/dec/18/italys-great-mysterious-storyteller/

And one to James Woods’s article in The New Yorker two years ago:

http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2013/01/21/women-on-the-verge

The Italian journalist Beppe Severgnini says of “The Italians”: “John Hooper takes his readers deep into the Italian labyrinth.  And they come out alive, with a smile on their faces!  A remarkable achievement.”  And here is a link to Elisabetta Povoledo’s review in the New York Times:
