there is more to the Hollywood story of All The Stars In The Heavens, by Adriana Trigiani than you may think. Trigiani’s book is our March selection for CapRadio Reads. One of the main characters in this glamorous story is a very unglamorous Sister Alda Ducci. Sister Ducci is forced to leave her convent and begin a new journey as a secretary to young Miss Loretta Young. The innocent Miss Ducci soon becomes much more to young Loretta, and at times it is difficult to tell which woman is more devout. Over the years, through her own triumphs and tragedies, Alda is a true and lifelong friend to Young, and her entire family. Trigiani has always had a wonderful way with characterization. When you finish one of her books, you really miss the people who have populated the pages. Please join us for a discussion of this book on Tuesday, March 14 at 2 or 6pm in our Community Room. We’ll have a little bit of Hollywood, right here in Sacramento.
