The Hanson Public Library Foundation hosted a very successful author talk and luncheon on Feb 9th.
Stephen Puleo, author of The Boston Italians : a Story of Pride, Perseverance, and Paesani, from the Years of the Great Immigration to the Present Day, spoke to a packed room after everyone had enjoyed a tasty Italian style meal.
An entertaining speaker, Puleo had his audience fascinated as he told of the hurdles people overcame to journey to this country and set up a new life, as well as the difficulties they encountered in their new surroundings.
The talk will be broadcast on the local cable channel in upcoming weeks.
Thanks to all who came and for the support of local businesses which helped make the event a success.
