Jan 15, 2021

"This story would not have been written if my mother had not told me about her grandfather..." Author JOE POLACCO's new book, 'Giovanni: Street Urchin of Naples', is best described as historical fiction, the (occasionally embellished) story of Joe's great-grandfather making the journey from Italy to America and his ascension to patriarchy in a society rife with racism and injustice.
