Enjoy a literary evening and book presentation, with selected readings from two recently published works from acclaimed Italian American authors Carol Bonomo Albright and Christine Palamidessi.
Carol Bonomo Albright presents her recently published novel, "Hold Up the Head of Holofernes", a riveting story of three women who experienced similar horrific assaults on their bodies, and one who wants to help victims like them through legislative means. Taking place in three different eras, each of the women taps into her power to heal herself through her own ingenuity and creativity. The novel discusses Resistance activity in WWII Italy and the sexual politics in 17th-century Rome.
Christine Palamidessi, author of "Bridge of Love", invites us to glimpse back a hundred years and peer into a time not so different than ours. Partake in the story of the courtship of two Italian farmers living in a small Tuscan village as you read the letters of thes 'promessi sposi'. This work collects these young lovers' tumultuous journey to have a 'love that lasts forever'.
Both books will be available for purchase and signing at our authors' table. Guests will be able to meet the authors during our post conference coffee and pastry reception...a literary event not to be missed.
