Adriana Trigiani named 2013 ‘All Henrico Reads’ author

The Henrico County Public Library, in partnership with Henrico County Public Schools and the Friends of Henrico County Public Library, will host New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani on Wednesday, April 24, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Glen Allen High School, 10700 Staples Mill Rd., as part of its annual All Henrico Reads program.

The featured title – Trigiani's novel The Shoemaker’s Wife – will be available for sale, as well as some of her other novels. She will autograph books following the program.

Trigiani, born in a small coal mining town in southwest Virginia, used her hometown as the setting of her first novel, Big Stone Gap. After graduating from Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, Ind., Trigiani moved to New York City to become a playwright. She founded the all-female comedy troupe “The Outcasts” and went on to accrue several television credits, including one as a writer/producer on The Cosby Show.

Reviews from the Washington Post to the New York Times to People have described Trigiani’s novels as “tiramisu for the soul,” “sophisticated and wise” and “dazzling.” The event is free and open to the public. Seating will be first-come, first-served. Doors will open at 6:15 pm. For details, visit http://www.henricolibrary.org/ahr
