More people at our table than usual

These days it is usually just Rosanne and me at the dining room table or occasionally 2 friends for dinner. Back in December, though, we hosted 6 members of our Sicilian family and the dining room was almost standing room only. 

This was their first day in town, so we greeted them with the quintessential LA meal of In-n-Out. 😀

Every other meal at home, though, looked more like our Italian meals when visiting them. They might have experienced the US and LA when we went out, but evenings cocooned them in a sense of normal home life.

Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting Mini Alumni Meetup

I had such a fun catch up lunch with 2017 Stephens MFA alums and Val yesterday at, of all places, IKEA because alum Amy Banks was in town to attend an all day workshop at the Disney Studios for writers with First Nation backgrounds (in their continued work to provide diversity on their channel).

Amy set it up with me and fellow mentor, Val Woods. Then alums Julie Berkobien and Lauren Smith were also free to drop by. I loved hearing about the various work they were all doing and how their MFAs both helped them get hired and, more importantly, helped them excel in their new positions! It also served as an accidental reunion of several writers of our When Women Wrote Hollywood book of essays, which we will be launching to the Columbia, Missouri community in just a few weeks, during the Citizen Jane Film Festival!

The Mentoris Project Book Launch Party And Reading With Dr. Rosanne Welch

I was deeply honored to be asked to read a section of my novel America’s Forgotten Founding Father (on the life of Filippo Mazzei) at the launch party for the entire Mentoris Book Project, which includes over 30 books about famous Italians and Italian Americans. At the Italian Cultural Institute in Westwood over a hundred family and friends gathered to celebrate this new publishing venture created by Robert Barbera under the umbrella of his Barbera Foundation. The evening also offered the chance to meet the director of the Italian Cultural Institute, Valeria Rumori and her cultural attache, Leonilde Callocchia.
