My Greenwich Village and the Italian-American Community: An Evening with Carol Bonomo Albright

Explore the history of the Italian-American immigrants below Washington Square through the eyes of author Carol Bonomo Albright as she discusses her recently released memoir and the South Village community of her childhood. Albright will talk about the sense of place experienced in ‘her’ Village through its mom and pop stores and through her school, where the nuns encouraged ballroom dancing. She’ll also discuss some of its colorful people and what made the area feel like a village, rather than a big city, and about her experience with the Italian reactions to the ‘food reformers.’

Copies of My Greenwich Village and the Italian-American Community will be available for purchase.
