GRAZIE to the Lakewood Public Library for the beautiful review of “My Sicily” just published in their spring catalogue! I’m so touched and grateful.
“Sicily is the vibrant, pulsating heart of the Mediterranean with zest to spare – an enchanted island whose landscapes sweep from the rawest spectacles of nature to elegantly planned cities bursting with life. Born and raised in her subject, Mignosa carefully guides readers through each sun-drenched destination, from a co-op where Tunisian and Sicilian women weave rugs in the ancient way to a simple terrace where tomatoes are hung to dry. A love of wine, cuisine, language and history make this book more of a celebration than a simple travel guide. Mignosa is the winner of the Italian Literary Award Sicilia Mondo for her writing and role as cultural ambassador.”
