About this event:
Hollywood washed up on the shore of Porto Vergogna on the Italian coast of Genoa in Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. She is the 22-year-old Dee Moray, fresh off the Roman film set of “Cleopatra.” She captures the love of Pasquale Tursi in this story that spans a half century, many lives, and an American landscape. Please join us to discuss the ruins. A limited number of copies will be available. You can also reserve a copy on the Chicago Public Library website by clicking here or by calling 312.744.8313.
