Book Discussion in Old Town Alexandria: Very Valentine, by Adriana Trigiani

Welcome to our monthly book discussion, on the second Tuesday of the month, in Old Town Alexandria.

In October we explored a more literary work. For November, we're going for something lighter.

This month's book is Very Valentine, by Adriana Trigiani.

In this funny, contemporary family saga, the Angelini Shoe Co., maker of exquisite wedding shoes since 1903, is one of the last family-owned businesses in Greenwich Village but is on the verge of bankruptcy. It falls to Valentine Roncalli to save the family business by bringing the Roncallis' old-world quality to the 21st century. When she travels to Italy on a quest for the perfect new shoe design, she discovers a family secret that turns her life upside-down.

I know the author slightly. If you have any questions about the book that you'd like to ask her, please let me know ahead of time, and I'll pass them on to her.

Please RSVP through the site if you can make it. And feel free to bring a friend!
