I LOVE Adriana Trigiani. I have read all of her books and have them if any Chapter Chatters want to borrow them. Delightful! Her new book "Very Valentine" looks like it won't disappoint. Here is a link to a video of her talking about her books
and some info!
Adriana Trigiani is beloved by millions of readers around the world for her hilarious and heartwarming novels. She was raised in a small coal-mining town in southwest Virginia in a big Italian family. Trigiani chose her hometown for the setting and title of her debut novel, the critically acclaimed and bestselling Big Stone Gap. the first in a series, will debut Tuesday, February 3, 2009. In this contemporary family saga, 33-year-old Valentine Roncalli must save her family’s custom-made shoe company—one of the last family owned business in Greenwich Village (in New York City)—while juggling the personal demands of love, family ties, and an unexpected trip to Italy. The novel’s sequel, Encore Valentine, will debut in February 2010.
Perhaps one popular book critic said it best: “Trigiani defies categorization. She is more than a one-hit wonder, more than a Southern writer, more than a woman’s novelist. She is an amazing young talent.”
