Participants will have a chance to ask questions and will enjoy a special performance by a surprise guest in celebration of Southern Italian culture! Zoom meeting information provided upon registration. Juliet Grames CC'05's debut novel, The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna (Ecco/HarperCollins), revolves around a century in the life of an Italian-American family, their emigration from Calabria, and the blood feud between their matriarch and her sister. The novel, which celebrates often-overlooked southern Italian history and culture, was a national bestseller and has been translated into ten languages.
