The Journey of Italians in America

The Simi Valley Library will host a lecture by University of Oregon historian and professor Vincenza Scarpaci, author of The Journey of Italians in America, on Monday, April 12 at 7:00 pm.

Dr. Scarpaci explores the contradictions of the Italian-American legacy, considering the ways in which Italians became an essential part of American history. Every aspect of life ranging from religion, the struggle for citizenship, anti-Italian prejudice, WWII, and of course, food, all come to life in this insightful illustrated talk. A book signing will follow the lecture.

If you're interested in Italian-American history, or history in general, it should be a very interesting evening!
