Dr.Ed Iannuccilli has written another book in series that chronicle providence in the 40s & 50. The latest, My Story Continues; From Neighborhood to Junior High School takes up where “What Ever happened to Sunday Dinner” leaves off. As one reader puts it: “Reading the stories of Ed’s childhood in the Italo-American section of Providence has been a refreshing reminder of the simple, yet vastly fulfilling, lives that were lived by our parent and grandparents not so long ago. I loved reading about his close-knit extended family and wide circle of friends and neighbors (some very colorful indeed!) and how his childhood was shaped by those beautiful people. Ed’s words are eloquent, witty and heartfelt and as such, a real pleasure to read. I pray Ed keep writing !!”
There will be books available for purchase.
