The Story of My People (Bordighera Press, 2015)
Mario Mignone

The Story of My People is a moving immigrant autobiography framed in the historical and cultural context of the 1960s and 70s. Reading this book one is persuaded even more by how great this country is as a land of opportunity. Eight immigrant children realize the American dream: three become physicians, one dentist, two university professors, and two teachers. Panelists will include Fred Gardaphé and Salvatore Rotella. Books will be available at a discounted price.

“The experience of immigration has never been exemplified in a story with such psychological depth, or placed in such a broad social and cultural context. There is human drama and the thrill of success.  It is a book that deserves to be read.” --Rev. Dr. Calvin O. Butts, III (President, State University of New York, College at Old Westbury and Pastor, Abyssinian Baptist Church, New York City)
