Can you remember the first time a book grabbed you? That is how I felt about Adriana Trigiani’s Lucia, Lucia. It was one of the rare times I hated to leave the confines of a novel. And I knew I couldn’t wait until the next time I could discover the characters Trigiani had to offer.
Lucia is like the best friend you look up to, with a depth of passion and who prepares to experience life to the fullest. A love like Nella has is true, touching and heart-breaking…the kind of love you dream about. Valentine’s big, extended family is at once protective and critical. Her story features meals and aromas that waft up from the page. Landscapes of America and Italy are drawn as vividly as Enza and Ave Maria are themselves.
Now, bestselling author Adriana Trigiani is going to “pop in” on us at the North Bellmore Public Library via Skype*. We will chat about her latest novel, The Shoemaker’s Wife, and maybe even some behind the scenes stories. So, be sure to bring your questions.
Grab a friend and join us this Thursday, January 10 at 7pm.
The North Bellmore Public Library is located at 1551 Newbridge Road in North Bellmore. For more information, call 516/785-6260 and ask for Fran.
*Please note that this is an event via Skype and although it will be live, the author will not be at the library in person.
