Adriana Trigiani. I inhaled Big Stone Gap and headed straight to its sequels.
As a person with roots in Appalachia, I could easily switch in my mother's hometown with Trigiani's creation.
Her version of Appalachia is a refreshing change from the fare that usually gets the press. You know--the broken down cars and refrigerators outside in the yard version.
Tonight, Columbus, Ohio book lovers are getting a treat thanks to the Thurber House. Trigiani is the featured speaker as part of the Thurber House's Evening with Author's Series.
Somewhere in between the years I spent living in Taiwan, India and back in Ohio, Trigiani has been busy writing. The woman churns out books. My word, I have a lot of reading to do!
Meeting her will be a welcome reprieve from these days of socked in from the snow.
