Life, Love, and Laughter
Author: Howard Hendrickson
As a teenager while learning to play the guitar, I would often add my own words to the songs. After taking a creative writing, I saw the similarity between poetry and song lyrics. Some of the poems in this book were written as song lyrics. Others were written from personal experiences. All are to be enjoyed by the reader.

An Italian American Story: A Memoir
Author: Susan D’Angelo Mannino
An Italian American Story is a powerfully poignant memoir of her family and the slow decline of its beloved patriarch. It is a celebration of the Italian American experience from the daughter of immigrants, the youngest of five siblings and her parents’ only Americana. Starting before her own lifetime in war torn Sicily, the author has us meet two young soldiers and two strong Sicilian women who will later become her grandparents. Then moving through decades, she weaves together her youth in Queens where the author grew up in an intensely close knit network of relatives and friends.
An Italian American Story is for every generation of Italian Americans. Truly a work of the heart, the author entertains us with cherished stories of her big and beautiful Italian family. Ms. Mannino reflects on the love and affection of her hard working mother. She makes us laugh with the heart warming anecdotes of her strict Sicilian father, and the challenge of being his teenage daughter! She writes about the beloved Sunday dinners that we all remember and cherish. The memoir has a voice of its own, that echoes the heart of its author.

The challenges we face over the course of a lifetime, especially those that involve major personal loss, can seem devastating, as radio personality and self-help specialist Dr. Raeleen D’Agostino Mautner discovered when her husband suddenly and unexpectedly died of a heart attack. The Italian rituals and lifestyle habits she grew up with—and later began researching—were instrumental in helping her stay grounded, feel comforted, and be gently redirected to a new path of joy and the next level of her own personal transformation.
Lemons Into Limoncello shows readers how to find self-acceptance, comfort, courage, and personal renewal on the heels of adversity—Italian style.
At some point in our lives, most of us will experience the kind of personal devastation that accompanies death of a loved one; or the loss of a job, a home, a pet, finances, health, a friendship; or even the loss of one’s self-esteem. When in the throes of such challenges it is hard to believe that we will ever enjoy life again, let alone possibly come away with the courage to live the next phase of our lives with deeper appreciation and clarity. Lemons into Limoncello offers a front-row seat to the Italian ability toarrangiarsi (get by) through elevating ordinary events to the extraordinary, and is the first self-help book to prescribe a traditional Italian cultural approach as a pathway to one’s own personal renaissance at a time when it is most needed.
