Trigiani will be introduced in person by Atlanta’s own best-selling author Mary Kay Andrews and will engage in an entertaining talk followed by audience Q&A. Those attending will receive a 1st edition copy of The Shoemaker’s Wife which they will be able to get autographed when they meet Trigiani following the discussion.
"We are absolutely thrilled to have Adriana coming to speak about The Shoemaker's Wife," said FoxTale co-owner Ellen Ward. "To add to the excitement, we will have Mary Kay Andrews here as well! We have worked hard, including a little bit of southern charm and hospitality, to make FoxTale, the Georgia destination for book signings and author events. We could not host events like this without the support of our amazing customers and community and are happy to bring events like this for all to enjoy."
Trigiani is beloved by millions of readers around the world for her hilarious and heartwarming novels. Adriana was raised in a small coal-mining town in southwest Virginia in a big Italian family. She chose her hometown for the setting and title of her debut novel, the critically acclaimed bestseller Big Stone Gap. The heartwarming story continues in the novel’s sequels Big Cherry Holler, Milk Glass Moon, and Home to Big Stone Gap. Stand-alone novels Lucia, Lucia,The Queen of the Big Time, Rococo, all topped the bestseller lists, as did Trigiani’s 2009 Very Valentine and its 2010 sequel Brava, Valentine.
Trigiani teamed up with her family for Cooking With My Sisters—a cookbook co-authored by her sister Mary, with contributions from their sisters and mother. The cookbook-memoir features recipes and stories dating back hundred years from both sides of their Italian-American family. Readers got to take a peek into the lives of the women who shaped Adriana, with her November 2010 non-fiction debut: Don’t Sing at the Table: Life Lessons from my Grandmothers. Here, Trigiani shares the wonderful insight and guidance from her two grandmothers: time-tested common sense advice on the most important aspects of a woman’s life, from childhood to old age.
One popular book critic perhaps said it best: “Trigiani defies categorization. She is more than a one-hit wonder, more than a Southern writer, more than a woman’s novelist. She is an amazing young talent.”
