Author Felice Picano to Read From His New Memoir at Lavender Library
Readings are on Sunday, May 10 from 6 - 8 p.m. and are free
Celebrated out Author Filice Picano is coming to Sacramento to promote and read from his upcoming memoir Nights at Rizzoli, named after a legendary palace of books, music and art: Rizzoli Books in New York where, Kennedys and Rockefellers mingled with tourists and “regular” customers under the watchful gaze of sophisticated employees.
For Picano, an aspiring but near-starving young writer who in 1971 lucked into a part-time job at the stunningly elegant store via a friend, it was a life-changing experience, one that exposed him to some of the brightest lights in the world’s cultural capital.
