Mike Fiorito – Call Me Guido
October 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Authors Mike Fiorito, Jennifer Martelli, and Laurette Folk get together for an evening of open mic and readings.
Mike Fiorito’s Call Me Guido, is a poignant, sometimes painful, often hilarious collection of stories about growing up Italian in Queens, New York. It’s filled with rich dialogue and recollections of family interactions that carry us below the surface, and surprises we can’t help but love, like his tale “Because of You”, about his odd Uncle Tutti, who turns out to be the superstar Tony Bennett, or his hard working mother, “ a tribe, a history of her family”, and of course his father, a gambler, opinionated, historian, and a complex mix that makes a relationship of father and son seem totally impossible to characterize, and yet Michael does, captivating us all along the way. I love this book!– Louisa Calio, author of Journey to the Heart Waters
