Penn State Scranton To Host Italian Heritage Event

We are excited to welcome Italian-American Author, Louis Palazzi Jr to Penn State Scranton on Monday, April 25 at 5 p.m. in the Study Learning Center’s Sherbine Lounge. 

This event is sponsored by the UNICO Chapter of Scranton. 

Lou Palazzi Jr. lives locally in the NEPA area and in his work “The New Americans: Portraits of an Italian-American Family,” he sheds light on Italian Immigration from the perspective of a family whose origin was predominantly Northern. It follows the stories of immigrants who came during The New Immigration from 1880-1920. We will have special guests from UNICO, The Largest Italian American Service Organization in the United States present for this event who are looking forward to meeting our students. Lou will have copies of his book to personally sign for attendees. 

Food and refreshments will be provided free of charge.
