Laurie Fabiano, held a book launch event in New York City’s “Little Italy” neighborhood this evening. Her book, “Elizabeth Street,” tells the story of the Italian immigrant experience in New York City during the early twentieth century. It is a tale of tragedies, triumphs, love, and the early days of the mafia. This book is based on true events, and the author has done extensive research in writing this book. Many of the characters are based on six generations of her family tree. The best part, for those of us who are unfamiliar with the Italian language, a glossary is provided at the beginning of the book. The book will also be appearing in next month’s issue of Oprah’s magazine O. So come in, or call us to reserve this book at the Fountaindale Public Library. Our copies are not in, but we can reserve one for you!
