"Louise" in italy

The Italian version of A Story for Louise,  called Una Storia per Louise, has been reviewed by Lorenzo Luatti, a gentleman who operates a web site called "Giunti Scuola," aimed at teachers of high school and elementary school in Italy. Perhaps the book will be used in classes which study emigration from Italy. Here is a link to Lorenzo's review of the book: https://www.giuntiscuola.it/sesamo/a-tu-per-tu-con-l-esperto/libri-e-intercultura/storie-collettive-e-familiari-storie-di-se Lorenzo also submitted a copy of the book to the National Central Library (Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale) in Florence, Italy.  He informs me that in the coming weeks I will receive confirmation that Una Storia per Louise  is available at the Library.  What an honor for my grandparents and my father!  Thank you, Lorenzo. Grazie mille.

News about A Story for Louise

   I am proud to announce that I have been chosen as one of the speakers in a program sponsored by the Palace Theater in Waterbury, Connecticut called Second Act. This program includes presentations by those who have undertaken a new venture after the age of 50. For me, the new venture was writing A Story for Louise. I am scheduled to appear on February 23, 2019. Please visit the web site of the Palace Theater for details.    And the Italian version of A Story for Louise is in production with the publisher. I expect it to be available in a couple of months on the web site of Lulu Publishing.  Once that happens, I will send notice of it to various places in Italy, including bookstores, producers of documentaries and television programs, and professors who might want to use the book in courses about emigration from Italy to the United States.     In the meantime, I welcome your questions and comments about the search for relatives in your ancestral country of origin.
