Westchester Italian Cultural Center: A Conversation with Rosanna Chiofalo, author of BELLA FORTUNA
The Westchester Italian Cultural Center celebrates the launch of BELLA FORTUNA with their “Intimate Conversations with Contemporary Authors” series. Join author Rosanna Chiofalo for a discussion and signing on September 5, 2012 @ 2pm.
In her enchanting debut novel, BELLA FORTUNA, Rosanna Chiofalo draws upon her own cultural heritage and experiences as a first-generation American growing up in Queens, NY. Readers are transported alongside Valentina DeLuca, a 30 year-old dressmaker, as she travels from the sidewalks of her close-knit New York neighborhood to the canals of Venice, Italy in what turns out to be much more than just a destination wedding trip. With its strong, stereotype-defying characters and evocative descriptions, BELLA FORTUNA is as much a tribute to Italian American culture as it is a stunning story about love, luck and second chances.
