Join us for an evening with Karen Haid, award-winning author of Calabria: The Other Italy. Her illustrated presentation will introduce the beauties and wonders of this fascinating region at the heart of the Mediterranean.

Calabria: The Other Italy captures the essence of contemporary Calabria and Southern Italy as it explores daily life, culture, history, the arts, food, society and tourism. “An intoxicating blend of humor, joy, and reverence” (Publisher’s Weekly), the nonfiction narrative is “part history, part travel guide, part memoir—and as informed and informative as it is engaging and entertaining, making it very highly recommended for general readers.” (Midwest Book Review)

There will be a book signing following the program where books will be available for purchase.

Free and open to the public. For more information, please call 702-507-3631.
