CCR Book Club: Meet the Author Event - May 24, 2022

For the month of May, the CCR Book Club has organized a Meet the Author Event with Connie Guzzo-McParland, an Italian-Canadian living in Montreal. She is in Italy to promote “Le Donne di Saturno” published by Rubbettino. This Italian novel combines her two English novels "The Girls of Piazza Amore" and "The Women of Saturn". Taken together, the two English novels describe the process of emigration from Calabria to Canada, including memories of life in a small Calabrian village, the crossing from Naples to Halifax, and the lives of three Italian-Canadian women in Montreal. It is a story that goes back and forth between Calabria and Montreal, the past and the present, old ways and new ways.

This event is open to all CCR members.

When: Tuesday, May 24, 2022
Time: 7 p.m. 
Where: by Zoom or potluck in person (limit 10 people); exact address sent to confirmed participants by email.
