An Evening with ANN HOOD!

at Salvation Cafe*, 140 Broadway, Newport

Wednesday, September 17th at 6:30pm 


Join us for an evening with Ann Hood as she reads from and signs copies of her latest novel, An Italian Wife.  

Advance tickets are $35 and include a copy of the book and a wine and cheese reception with Ann. On-site tickets can not be guaranteed, so reserve today at either Island Books location or by calling 849-2665!

Spanning the course of three wars and almost a century, An Italian Wife is a multi-generational saga chronicling the story of the Rimaldi family, from the first generation who immigrated to the United States from Italy on the cusp of the twentieth century to their great grandchildren.  This is the American experience writ small, explored through the lens of one immigrant family.  Beautifully written and deeply emotional, it will thrill fans and critics alike, and will attract new readers to this author.

Already a STAFF PICK at Island Books, we can't say it better than Wally Lamb!

"I loved Ann Hood's An Italian Wife in the same way I loved Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteredge -- and for the same reason.  The interconnected stories that fan out from a central character -- in this case, matriarch Josephine Rimaldi -- illuminate important truths about the way in which our families, our ancestry, and the era into which we are born shape who we become.  An Italian Wife is a multigenerational masterpiece!


* Event is upstairs at Salvation.  Doors open at 6pm.  Make a night of it and have dinner at Salvation, beforehand at 5pm or after the event. Dinner reservations recommended.
