Summer in a Bowl

Chrissy, the manager of Hickman Crossroads Library invited me to read Summer in a Bowl at a

img_2570 lunch meeting with soup (the soup from the book). I did and also explained about he making of the book and all about the real Aunt Mary.

They also were interested in Rosa and the Red Apron and my other work–what a lovely day!

Friends of the library made treats and more than twenty –in fact, almost thirty, area folks came to hear about the books. Thank you everyone!!!

Write What You Know

From the very first, and no matter what the over topic of my fiction and poetry, it is all about what I know–from the inside out–and a lot of what I know comes from my Italian American Heritage.

This is the month we celebrate that heritage (and some other heritages  as well, I know, but I am focusing on mine in this email.

So, I invite you to look at strong Italian American women in American history in my Legacy of Honor series–
