Meet the Author with the CCR Book Club - March 17, 2018

The CCR Book Club would like to invite all interested CCR members to join them as they welcome Canadian author Keith Henderson to their March meeting!

The group will be reading Henderson's latest novel, "Acqua Sacra" (available both in the original English and in an Italian translation), and the author and his agent will be at the March meeting to answer questions and listen to the group's reactions as they enjoy a potluck lunch.

"Acqua Sacra" is about a Montreal Italian-Canadian family with a property in Acqua Sacra, Abruzzo. A recently-divorced mother of two teenagers, her family's earthquake-damaged ancestral home in need of repair, feelings of failure, self-doubt and guilt swirling with the struggle for self-esteem and independence, public and private sector corruption and organized crime on both sides of the Atlantic, Old World beliefs and symbolism, and a cast of (sometimes comedic) characters including accountants, lawyers, bureaucrats, mobsters, witches and migrant workers -- these are some of the many features of this 2016 work.

Space is strictly limited for this special Meet the Author event, so book soon and start reading!

When: Saturday, Mar. 17, 2018
Time: 1:00 p.m.
Where: Piazza Bologna area; exact address sent to confirmed participants by email.
