The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza will host the co-author of Daughters, Dads, and the Path Through Grief: Tales from the Italian America, Lorraine Mangione, PhD, on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 3 pm in Albany, NY.
Dr. Mangione will speak about and read from her book, which encompasses three major themes: the importance of the father/daughter relationship throughout the lifecycle; the process of loss, mourning, and reconfiguring the relationship when the father dies; and the impact of Italian American culture on such relationships and loss. The book also offers suggestions and exercises for women who are going through the experiences of mourning. The themes are relevant and valuable to all Italian American women, regardless of whether they have lost their fathers or not.
Local women mentioned in the book are Louise DePaolo Donato; Andrianna (Ann) Renna Riley; Donna Zanella Parker; Joyce Micare. All four women are actively involved in Italian American clubs and societies in the area. The event is free and open to the public. The event is free and open to the public.
