Farms, Factories, and Families tells the stories of immigrant women who arrived in Connecticut with more than dowries in their steam trunks: they came with the ability to face adversity with quiet inner strength, the stamina to work tirelessly from dawn to dusk, the skill to manage the family economy, and adherence to moral principles rooted in the southern Italian code of behavior. Second- and third-generation Italian American women who attended college and achieved professional careers on the wings of their Italian-born mothers and grandmothers have not forgotten their legacy, and though Italian American immigrant women lived by a script they did not write, this book gives them the opportunity to tell their own stories, in their own words.
Join us for the book presentation and meet the author. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the conclusion of the program. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
