Local author Cecilia Bouchard delighted the crowd as she spoke of the inspiration behind her latest book, My Grandpa and Me. She shared her calling to writing, and the path she took to writing and publishing this story.

Cecelia shared her travel adventures which included a virtual tour of Italy followed by a tale about the charming and interesting art,  architecture, customs, lifestyle, monuments, ruins, well known and local treasures that span the Italian countryside.

Many audience members have visited Italy, with loved ones or while in the service. Many ah’s, nods, and “remember that’s” ensued.
