celebrate ONE BOOK, ONE COUNTY with

Tony’s Wife 


Adriana Trigiani


(January 31, 2019,… Bestselling author, Adriana Trigiani, is scheduled to be in Montgomery County this spring!  Come see her on Thursday, April 11 at 2:00 pm at Ursinus College’s Bomberger Auditorium in Collegeville or at 7:00 pm at Keneseth Israel Synagogue in Elkins Park. Her two appearances are the main feature of the fourth annual ONE BOOK, ONE COUNTY community wide event hosted by Montgomery County Libraries. Book sale and signing to follow both events.

Adriana Trigiani’s Tony’s Wife is “set in the lush Big Band era of the 1940s and World War II, this spellbinding saga from beloved New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani tells the story of two talented working class kids who marry and become a successful singing act, until time, temptation, and the responsibilities of home and family derail their dreams.

Shortly before World War II, Chi Chi Donatelli and Saverio Armandonada meet one summer on the Jersey shore and fall in love. Both are talented and ambitious, and both share the dream of becoming singers for the legendary orchestras of the time… All goes well until it becomes clear that they must make a choice: Which of them will put their ambitions aside to raise a family and which will pursue a career?”

Tickets are $15-$20 each plus a service charge. Ticket sales offset program expenses and ensure future One Book, One County events.
