April 24-26: “My Sicily” Presentations in New York City!

Buongiorno New York!!!  I look forward to seeing you for two very special events this week:

April 24:  An exclusive evening in Sicily organized by the prestigious Tiro A Segno Club of New York City.  The event is part of their Guest Chef Series and will feature “The Mannino Brothers,”  A trio of magnificent Sicilian Chefs & Restauraters inspired by………..”My Sicily,” my book!!!  I will be onsite to present my book and speak about La Bella, Magica Sicilia.  The event is private and only open to members of Tiro A Segno, the oldest Italian Organization in the USA, celebrating 125 years this very year!! I want to thank Mark Corea, President of Tiro A Segno, and Paula Lauriano, Director of Member Services & Special Events, for their kindness and generosity.  Will post photos later this week. Stay tuned!!


April 26 at 2.00pm – A very special “My Sicily” Presentation at the Westchester Italian Cultural Center located at One Generoso Pope Place (24 Depot Square for GPS and MapQuest) Tuckahoe, New York 10707.  Phone: (914) 771-8700.  I want to thank Patrizia Calce, Program Director, for organizing such a delightful afternoon, part of their “Meet the Author” series on Fridays.  The event is free and open to the public.  Copies of “My Sicily” will be available for sale.  I will report back with photos at the end of the week!  Make it a great one!!
