Description: My first book, Agrodolce, considers multiple renders of “home” from my perspective as the daughter of Italian immigrants. Through poetry, essays, and recipes, I explore the agrodolce (sour-sweet) of losing, claiming, and remaking home, the ways in which grief and joy comingle in memory and shape the present. I will share how food—its lore, preparation, and enjoyment—is sacred to Italian culture and central to my understandings of self and place.
