Italian American Fathers and Daughters: It’s the Relationship that Counts

The summer 2014 edition of Sons of Italy included an article about Dr. Lorraine Mangione’s book, Daughters, Dads, and the Path through Grief: Tales from Italian America, that she co-wrote with AUNE graduate Donna H.

In the most recent Italian Americana journal, Drs. Mangione and DiCello had an article published, entitled Love, Loss, and Continuing the Relationship: Italian-American Daughters and their Deceased Fathers.  Italian Americana is a cultural and historical journal from the University of Rhode Island.
