Join author Albert Ruggiero for readings from his book, "Pearls from Carol", a delightfully funny collection of over 300 stories and poems written by his late wife, Carol. Books will be available for purchase.
This little volume has been both written by and is dedicated to my late wife, Carol Ann Ruggiero For twenty years she lovingly attended and wrote for a writing group known as “Writers Unlimited.” These are her words, her thoughts, her humorous outlooks on life. This book is meant to be enjoyed by anyone of any age or social background. It is real and utterly without pretense. The author possessed no hidden agenda nor did she ever aspire to be anything but what she which was a genuine lady. Her life experiences endowed her with a healthy respect for humanity along with a large dose of common sense and humor. This book can be read cover to cover but it also can be read and savored in small doses over a long period of time. Each story centers on one brief moment. Each story is a tiny world of its own. Early on, Carol was taught to “show” not just tell. This lesson well learned, is the key to understanding and enjoying “Pearls from Carol” It is my firm hope that you the reader will both enjoy and pass on these pages for the enjoyment of many. This is a timeless gem. In our troubled, complex and anxiety ridden society this book will provide many a smile and no small amount of comfort.
