For the next two weeks, Adriana Trigiani is touring her latest book, The Supreme Macaroni Company with Italy Book Tours. This is the third book in the Valentine Trilogy and can be read as a stand alone. I love the cover of this book. It reminds me of my summer in Ostia, Italy when I was 18 and stayed with my cousins who lived by the sea, their home facing the large rocks I loved to sit on. Much like the woman on the cover of this book.
For those of you familiar with Trigiani's books, you know she builds unforgettable characters. All her books have an Italian them, and will make you laugh and sometimes cry. But mostly they will make you fall in love with Italian American families.
I had the pleasure of meeting Adriana at Book Expo America, when she came to the line of readers who were waiting in line to get an autographed copy of this book. She took the time to shake everyone's hand before making her way back to the table to begin autographing. Her popularity and New York bestseller status have not gone to this author's head. She is down to earth, friendly and open. That, and the fact that she writes great books have gained her a slew of loyal readers.
Follow Adriana's tour schedule from August 4 to 15 and read the reviews of The Supreme Macaroni Company. I'm so excited to have her on tour with Italy Book Tours, and I hope you get a chance to read her books!
