The Wisdom of My Grandmothers
Adriana Trigiani's two remarkable grandmothers, Lucia and Viola, lived through the twentieth century from beginning to end as working women who juggled careers and motherhood. From the factory line to the family table, the two of them - the very definition of modern women - cut a path for their granddaughter by demonstrating courage and skill in their fearless approach to life, love and overcoming obstacles. In The Wisdom of My Grandmothers, Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia and the Big Stone Gap novels, visits the past to seek answers to the essential questions that define the challenges women face today: how we hold on to the values that make life rich and beautiful, how we can take risks and reap the rewards, how to stand resilient in the face of tragedy. Adriana Trigiani is an award-winning playwright, television writer and documentary filmmaker and, of course, novelist. The author of the bestselling Big Stone Gap series and Lucia, Lucia and Very Valentine, she has also written and will direct the big-screen version of her first novel, Big Stone Gap. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.
