coralloLocal Memoir Signing


Former educator Carmelo Corallo will be reading from his recently published memoir “From Vico Tasso to Home in the Watchung,” a story of growing up in Sicily during fascism and WWII and coming to America in 1950, at the Louis Bay 2nd Library on Saturday, October 11 at 2 pm. After emigrating, Corallo worked in the factories of Paterson, became a barber and pursued his studies and eventually married his childhood sweetheart Lina whom he had left behind in Italy. Corallo then became a teacher and then a vice principal for several years. He was long involved in the San Giuseppe Santa Croce Camerina Society in Hawthorne and the Hawthorne Lions Club. His story of perseverance in the face of adversity is one shared by many who have come to America. To register, please visit the events calendar at or call 973-427-5745 ext. 11.
