A new book! Venice Rising: Aqua Granda, Pandemic, Rebirth

A few months ago and in the midst of Italy’s severe lockdown, Kathleen Ann Gonzalez, California based editor, writer, teacher and lover of Venice, asked me to join a group of Venetian writers, artists, craftspeople and locals, and write about my firsthand perspective and experiences with the two disasters that recently hit Venice: the exceptional high tides of November 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Kathleen has edited and published our stories, and made them available in the book: Venice Rising: Aqua Granda, Pandemic, Rebirth. Available in paperback on Amazon and in eBook on Smashwords, proceeds from book sales will go to the grassroots organizations:

We are Here Venice

No Grandi Navi

Venice Calls

What reviewers are saying:

"...This timely, moving book tells the story of those extraordinary months, image by image, memory by memory, in the voices of the Venetians themselves."

-- Michelle Lovric, author of The Book of Human Skin, The Remedy, and Carnevale

"I loved Venice at first sight, but it wasn't until I read Venice Rising that I truly appreciated -and fell in love with--Venetians.  They are, as historian William Thayer observed a century ago, "magnificent by nature..."

--Dianne Hales, author of La Bella Lingua, La Passione, and Mona Lisa

Let me know what you think, too.

Grazie, Marie Ohanesian Nardin
