Sunday, September 8th – 2 pm:
Italian-American writers
read their work

Six writers converge from various points on the West Coast and New York City for an afternoon of readings hosted by Laura Ruberto, co-chair of the Berkeley City College Department of Arts and Culture.

George Guida, ("The Pope Stories and other Tales of Troubled Times", Bordighera Press, 2012),

George Guida (The Pope Stories and other Tales of Troubled Times, Bordighera Press, 2012),

On hand for the afternoon will be Giovanna Capone (Oakland); Jennifer Lagier Fellguth (Santa Cruz); Paul Fericano (Santa Barbara); George Guida (New York City) ; Tommi Avicolli Mecca (San Francisco); and James Tracy (San Francisco).

These writers share an Italian-American background that has had a hand in shaping their work.  Several have devoted their attention largely to poetry, plays and fiction, while Avicolli Mecca, Tracy and Fericano have long track records as activists as well, their writing and agitating going hand in hand…

  1. I am 100% Italian-American and wrote the book on olive oil – The Passionate Olive -101 Things to do with Olive OIl. Perhaps next year I can be included in your list of authors.

    I chronicle the uses of olive oil in light of growing up Italian-American.

    Kindest regards …and olive oil,

    Carol
