Bestselling author Adriana Trigiani will visit Montgomery County this spring!

Come see her on Thursday, April 11, at 2 p.m. at Ursinus College’s Bomberger Auditorium in Collegeville or at 7 p.m. at Keneseth Israel Synagogue in Elkins Park.

Her two appearances are the main feature of the fourth annual One Book, One County communitywide event hosted by Montgomery County Libraries. A book sale and signing will follow both events.

To coincide with this big celebration, the William Jeanes Memorial Library will hold book club discussions of Trigiani’s latest novel, "Tony’s Wife," on April 3 at 3 p.m. and April 4 at 6:30 p.m. Book lovers are invited to share their thoughts on this novel “set in the lush Big Band era of the 1940s and World War II, that tells the story of two talented working class kids, Chi Chi Donatelli and Saverio Armandonado, who marry and become a successful singing act, until time, temptation and the responsibilities of home and family derail their dreams.” The book discussion events are free of charge and open to all.
