From 11 to 13 June they meet at the Auditorium Parco della Musica writers, readers, editors, in the hybrid formula of a program that sees many meetings in the presence and some with the authors connected live from their country, from their study: in the technological format that the pandemic has made familiar to millions of Italians, involved in the distance learning of their children and with their work in smart working. Above all, the stories, the reflections, the words return to try to better understand the world that is already complex, has become even more complicated.

This edition of Books Like is part of a shared festival project that will see the new editions of Portici di Carta in Turin and Lungomare di Libri in Bari take place in the coming weeks.

“We are restarting with a new season after a complex period that has kept us away. We are happy to bring the writers, readers and books back to the Auditorium in an awaited live event. With Books like, but also with the summer concerts in the cavea and the Biodivercity project in the pedestrian area, we return the Parco della Musica to the city, which becomes a physical space for meeting and exchange “, declares the CEO of the Musica per Roma Foundation Daniele Pittèri.

Books like this streamlined version, compared to the usual editions with over one hundred meetings, asked some international authors to tell about their new books, in many cases completed in this very special year and a half. Here then are the long-awaited novels by Javier Cercas, Emmanuel Carrère, Colum McCann, Elvira Lindo, Erica Jong’s autobiography, Suketu Mehta’s on the migrant condition, poems by Manuel Vilas.

No one now doubts the centrality of science in our lives and books as he asked the scientist and life senator Elena Cattaneo to present her essay Armed with science, to the physicist Carlo Rovelli and to the authors and hosts of Radio3 Scienza to explain ” science”.

The philosophers Donatella Di Cesare and Roberto Esposito have the task of explaining how the pandemic crisis has accelerated the centrality of biopolitics, transformed democracies and our lives.

The meetings with Alberto Angela and the dialogue between Francesco Rutelli and Andrea Carandini are dedicated to Rome, its past and its future.

The role of information in this year and a half of the pandemic will be at the center of the meeting with Diego Bianchi, Andrea Salerno and Francesca Schianchi. Back to Books like Zerocalcare, protagonist of the meeting How stories are told.

As always in Libri as there are many direct dialogues – without moderator – two-part conversations on writing and on the stories that literature tells: Nicola Lagioia and Antonella Lattanzi, Edoardo Albinati and Walter Siti, Michele Serra and Francesco Piccolo, Emanuele Coccia and Melania Mazzucco, Silvia Avallone and Camilla Boniardi, Giulio Ferroni and Laura Minervini.

Some friends of the festival come back as guests Alberto Angela (Like Nero. Hell over Rome) e Vito Mancuso (About the meaning of life). With Elena Cattaneo are the three guests who will each give a lesson.
