My book is a family story that describes and narrates my family’s favorite Sicilian destinations, cuisines but also our fondest memories, emotions and stories.   I’m delighted and honored to be one of the Ambassadors of Family for this weekend’s celebration.  The Western Reserve Historical Society is an Affiliation of the Smithsonian Institute so doubly honored to be present this weekend.
