Sicilian Love Stories: A DiGiovanni Family History Sequel
Tuesday, July 16, 5:30-6:30pm, Metro Wines, 169 Charlotte Street


Can genuine love and romance spring from kidnapping, vendetta and the travails of difficult trans-Atlantic immigration to America? 
  Sicilian Love Stories: A DiGiovanni Family History Sequel answers that question with a resounding “Yes!”

Retired judge and author Jay Wilkinson is back to share four romantic sagas from his book A Lie Will Suffice in the expanded sequel to his entertaining and culturally educational presentation given last November at Metro Wines. If you missed Jay then, make sure you don't miss this dynamic speaker on his summer speaking tour!     

Jay’s family had strong links to organized crime and all the drama that goes with it: Atlantic Ocean crossings, murder, extortion, vendetta, bootlegging, labor influence on the New Orleans banana docks, two criminal trials, and a secret interment in the family burial vault. Jay will focus on the unique love stories from his family history that ultimately shaped the complex, but ultimately triumphant DiGiovanni-Guinta family history. 

$15 (plus tax) Includes a glass of white or red Sicilian wine and snacks.

Jay's book will be available for purchase and signing by the author. Payment by cash, check or Venmo only
