Meet editors and contributors of Casa Italia's newly published book, "Italian Women in Chicago: Madonna mis! QUI debbo vivere? (You mean I have to live HERE)? published by the Italian Cultural Center at Casa Italia.
Editors Dominic Candeloro, Kathy Catrabone and Gloria Nardini will share stories from the book. The spotlight on Italians in Chicago has always been on the men. This anthology is a preliminary effort to write that wrong. Dominic Candeloro, lead editor, recruited almost 50 contributing authors, including attorney/author Theresa Amato of Oak Park.
Does the Earth belong to us or do we belong to the Earth? This book presents a question that can only be answered by humanity one being at a time. Author Daniel Quinn creates a relationship between the student, whose search for the truth takes him on a journey in time that extends backward and forward over the life span of the earth; and the teacher, a creature of immense wisdom that has a story to tell, one that no other human being has ever heard. All are welcome to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
