An Italian Sisterhood (Solistice Publishing)

Local children’s book writer, Olga Cossi, celebrates the launch of her life’s memoirs. Heartfelt and humorous, the book tells the story of three precocious sisters, daughters of Italian immigrants who came to California’s Napa Valley just after the Depression, a time when simple pleasures satisfied. After almost 70 years of writing, Cossi is the author of more than 30 children’s books, including Pemba Sherpa, released in 2010, which was honored by the Junior Library Guild.
