Join us for a book talk with Dr. Ed Iannuccilli! As a sequel to his popular books, Growing Up Italian: Grandfather’s Fig Tree and Other Stories and What Ever Happened to Sunday Dinner, Dr. Ed walks, and sometimes runs you through his teenage years. He shares his neighborhood with us through his exploits ‘Capturing the Flag’ in the sand banks, getting a rah-rah and playing the pinball machine. He writes of his elementary school adventures, singing debut and favorite teachers. You will laugh out loud as he moves on to junior high school with stories of his career book, going for pizza, playing the drums in the band concert and more. He ends with those wonderful summer days when his parents rented a beach house. Join in, read, have fun. It’s your story!
