Authors Frank Gioia and Larry Zingale are two old friends who share an Italian-American background. Frankie and Larry met at IWOW (In Words Out Words) open mic at Deb Koffman’s Art Space in Housatonic, MA, and have followed one another’s writing careers over the years. Frankie’s memoir collection, The Mercury Man, has recently been re-issued by Bordighera Press. In 2016, his play 14 Holy Martyrs, was given a staged reading in the Berkshires. Larry is the author of several novels and plays, most recently the novel, Killer Dog. Larry is also a painter whose work has been shown locally and in New York. The two old friends will share their creative energy with one another and read from their work.

There will also be a special musical performance by Steve Mole.
