Second Saturday Readers-A Thousand Days in Venice by Marlena De Blasi

Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 10:00am - 11:30am

LVDL’s Adult Book Discussion on the Second Saturday of the month at 10:00a.m. This month’s title is A Thousand Days in Venice by Marlena De Blasi. When Fernando spots Marlena in a Venice café, he knows immediately that she is the “One”, yet Marlena is caught off guard. A divorced American woman traveling through Italy, she thought she was satisfied with her life. Yet within a few months, she quits her job as a chef, sells her house, kisses her two grown kids good-bye, and moves to Venice. As the transplanted American learns the hard way about the peculiarities of Venetian culture, we are treated to an honest, often comic view of how two middle-aged people, both set in their ways but also set on being together, build a life.

Books are available at the Circulation Desk the month prior to the discussion. Refrehsments will be served and all are welcome to attend.
