Share this program
Tuesday June 2, 2015
Community Event - See description for location
12:30 PM - Add to Outlook calendar  |  Add to Google calendar
For ages 11 - Adults
Before outdoor films, mouthwatering cuisine, and the spectacle of bocce brought thousands of visitors to its streets, Baltimore's Little Italy was a haven for generations of immigrants. With Saint Leo's Church at its heart, the neighborhood is a place where lifelong friendships are forged and nicknames are serious business. With memories of beloved local figures like Marion Mugs Mugavero and artist Tony DeSales, interviews with lifelong locals and a few classic recipes, author Suzanna Rosa Molino creates a spirited history of this enduring Italian community. Join Suzanna Molino for this interactive program as she reads excerpts from her book and answers questions. Books will be available for purchase and signing. This program will be held in the Hospitality Dining Room at Carroll Lutheran Village and is open to the public. A Celebrating America program.
