Conversation and Tea with Adriana Trigiani

Barbara's picture

Tea with The Adriana -- what fun! Adriana Trigiani is just like her books -- fun, interesting, passionate, and real. Five LUCKY bloggers will share laughter and conversation with Adriana on May 27 at Alice's Tea Room in NYC . Please see TLC BookTours for detailed info.

A contest to see Adriana and now a GIVEAWAY to read Adriana! You don't have to be a blogger to win this prize. I have 5 copies of the paperback, Very Valentine, to give away. Please leave a comment and you will be entered to win. How easy is that?

Very Valentine tells the story of Valentine Roncalli, a thirty-three year old, who is struggling to bring her family's Greenwich Village shoe business out of financial distress while dealing with her family's personal dynamics, a trip to Italy to learn more about the shoe business, and her new chef-boyfriend, Roman Falconi. Filled with ups and downs, secrets, love, lost, and humor, Very Valentine is a treat for reading groups that want a great read full of characters with real life issues. Adriana fills the story with such a sense of place and love of Greenwich Village. The paperback even has recipes to help your book discussion, especially Teodaro's Limoncello. Lemons, vodka, and a big mason jar. What a hoot! 

And, Adriana's new book, Brava, Valentine, will be released February 9. Yea! More of Valentine Roncalli and her family's hi-jinks with a touching and humorous wink at life's lessons. 

Have you read any Adriana's books? Let me know and you will be entered in the Very Valentine giveaway! (sssh -- I'll be giving away Brava, Valentine next month!)

I believe in supporting authors that put themselves out there. I try to follow blogs, join their groups, etc., all in the name of supporting fellow authors. Adrianna's books actually sound good and I'm pleased to hear of her success. Congrats! And good luck.

I can't wait to read Very Valentine. I have loved Big Stone Holler and her other books. She is a gifted writer who takes the reader to the homes of her characters. I am seriously thinking of adding her to my required summer reading this year year for my juniors. Thank you.

Joyce, What a good idea for

Joyce, What a good idea for your juniors. Adriana loves to speak with readers -- maybe your juniors would like to have a phonechat with her. Thank you for your comments.

I haven't read any of this author's book, but it looks like a great read for February.

I like books that bring alive the location to those who have never been there. It sounds similar to what I did in my novel, Billion Dollar Winner where I brought to life the WestSide of Chicago that few authors mention.

I love her books, and love

I love her books, and love that she is promoting over Valentine's Day. She has a whole world full of amazing characters, and I can't get enough of them. I was delighted when she jumped into the Young Adult market---so teens can get a sense of her lucious writing.

Thanks, Denise. yes, amazing
