DINNER AND BOOK SIGNING IN A PRIVATE HOME, to benefit our Cesarina Horing Award (Scholarship Program)

THURSDAY, APRIL 26th 2018 

We are truly thankful for the generosity of our hosts, Nina Gardner and Francesco Olivieri, for the friendly welcome to our members and the delicious Venetian homemade dinner. The highlight of the evening was Marie Ohanesian Nardin‘s semi-autobiographical novel, based on the story of how an American girl from Los Angeles visits Venice and falls in love with a gondolier and raises a family there. The author presented her book, “Beneath the Lion’s Wings,” in conversation with Nina Luzzatto Gardner, and accompanied by fun videos. Proceeds went towards our scholarship program, in particular to the funding of the Cesarina Horing Awards fund. Our sincere thanks to Marie Ohanesian Nardin and Nina Gardner for making this event possible.
