Castan & Canio: An April Reading at Mattituck-Laurel Library

April 18, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

The Mattituck-Laurel Library is hosting a literary event, ‘Castan & Canio: An April Reading’ on Thursday, April 18 at 2 p.m. This event features two distinguished personalities: Fran Castan and Canio Pavone.

Fran Castan, named the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association’s Long Island Poet of the Year in 2013, has also received the U.K.’s 2021 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine and the Poetry Society of America’s Lucille Medwick Award, among other honors.

Canio Pavone, the founding owner of the fabled bookstore ‘Canio’s Books’ in Sag Harbor, has been a literary center for both eminent and emerging artists since its inception. From the first reading by Nelson Algren in 1980 to the annual marathon reading of Moby Dick, Canio’s Books has contributed significantly to the literary scene.

At this event, Pavone will be reading his own translations of the Italian poet Lalla Romano and excerpts from his memoir in progress. This is a great opportunity for literature enthusiasts to delve into the world of poetry and memoirs and enjoy an afternoon of literary delight.
