Dr. Colletta is the author of “They Came in Ships”, “Only a Few Bones”, and “Finding Italian Roots”. Copies of his books will be offered for sale at the program.
Admission for this event is $25 per person, and includes a buffet dinner, assorted beverages (including wine and beer), and free printing from library electronic resources. Library staff will be on hand to assist. Door prizes will be distributed along with dessert. Dressy casual attire is suggested. Please register early as space is limited.
