Issue #30: Vita Supernova 💫 - Back in attendance at the Turin International Book Fair

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics,
In the past few days, our editors attended the 33rd edition of the Turin International Book Fair.
New releases, hot topics of Italian and International publishing were under our radar. We are excited to have been part of the first book fair in attendance after a one-year and a half absence. ✒️
From Thursday, October 14, to the end of #SalTo21, our #Read section was fueled with book reviews and special features by our Hypercritics covering the event.
Here you have a selection of our best reading recommendations!📝

Vita Supernova 💫
This year’s Book Fair is a tribute to Dante Alighieri. But the Supreme Poet’s Vita Nova becomes Vita Supernova to celebrate the rebirth and the return to a physical dimension. It’s also an invitation to rethink the world after the pandemic.
