In October, I did a mini tour of the Cleveland, Ohio and the Western PA area. I had the pleasure of performing my show, signing books and meeting amazing people. Who made it happen? The one and only Tony Marotta, star of “Italian Sounds Music Radio”. Tony connected me with local colleges and Italian groups, as well as introducing me to Pam Dorazio-Dean, Curator for Italian American History at Western Reserve Historical Society. Pam was also very helpful and a pleasure to be with! I also want to thank Elia LaFelice of Cleveland State U. and John Sarkissian of Youngstown U. Also the Club Molise who welcomed me with open arms. Below are some photos of my trip.
