'MARRYING ITALIAN' Family history at Lalor Library

During National Family History Month I will be talking at Lalor Library about my marriage to an older Italian immigrant who was a partisan in Italy at the end of WWII. My memoir 'Marrying Italian: When love is not enough', will take you on a journey through cultural contrasts and parallels, Italian cooking and culture, passionate romance and blind rage, depression, drugs, despair and a joyful family reconciliation in Italy. 

I will also talk about the long road to publication and some of the issues that arose when I began to write about my reluctant family. 

On Tuesday 9 August, I look forward to meeting new people and sending copies of my book to new homes.
