CARMELA CARTUTTIAUTHOR, ARTIST, TEACHER
There are many new authors struggling to promote books that I thought why not introduce one or two as a regular blog feature? This first segment will focus on a newly published book by a multi-talented unknown author who has drawn inspiration from a family member.
Author Carmela Cattuti is a Boston artist and teacher. She created BETWEEN THE CRACKS as an homage to her great-aunt, who survived the earthquake and eruption of Mt Etna and bravely left Sicily to start a new life in America.
Carmela was born into an Italian family and as a child, listened to her great aunt, (who partly raised her) relate stories of the destruction of Messina and the aftermath. "My entire family died, I was one of the lucky ones" her aunt often said, a phrase that still resonates with Carmela.
The following is a summary of BETWEEN THE CRACKS by Carmela Cattuti:
Join Angela Lanza as she experiences the tumultuous world of early 20th century Sicily and New York. Orphaned by the earthquake and powerful eruption of Mr. Etna in 1908, Angela is raised in the strict confines of an Italian convent. Through various twists of fate, she is married to a young Italian man whom she barely knows, then together with her spouse, immigrates to the U.S.
