Fiction Reading: Catina's Haircut
A Novel In Short Stories
by Paola Corso
Sunday, May 1st, 4:00 p.m.

From the publisher, The University of Wisconsin Press: "Catina’s Haircut spans four generations of a peasant family in the brutal poverty of post-Unification southern Italy and in an immigrant’s United States. The women in these tales dare to cross boundaries by discovering magical leaps inherent in the landscape, in themselves, and in the stories they tell and retell of family tragedy at a time of political unrest. Through an oral tradition embedded in the stone of memory and the flow of its reinvention, their passionate tale of resistance and transformation courses forward into new generations in a new world."

"Art In The Garden"
Saturday, May 14th, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
