Club EventsBook Introduction and Reading
We were very lucky
to hold the Canadian
introduction of the
new book, Con
Beano nel Cuore, at
the Fogolar on
Monday, October 23.
This was an event
organized by Lou and
Iola Ienna, and we
thank them for reaching out to the Fogolar in order to hold this
event at the club. It was an exciting evening, and there were a
good number of people on hand to celebrate this occasion.
Maddalena Mizzau, the author, travelled from Friuli to Canada to
share her new book. The book was released in Italy earlier this
month. The Canadian introduction of the book took place at the
Fogolar, and there will be an American introduction in the next
few weeks. The event was very interesting as those in atten-
dance were able to hear the author speak about her book and
how she was inspired to write it. Then the audience was treated
to excerpts of the book, read in English, Italian and Furlan, by
three of our Fogolar members. Thank you to Iola Ienna, Elver
Peruzzo, and Marisa DeFranceschi for being a part of this event
and doing a wonderful job with the readings. Ms. Mizzau has
also graciously donated a signed copy of the book to the Fogolar
The book is currently not available for purchase in Canada, but
she will work with her publisher to find a way to have those inter-
ested in purchasing a copy to be able to do so. We wish her
continued success with her writing.
The Trunk-or-Treat event continues to be a successful event for
the Fogolar to attract families with children to the club. This
event was held on Friday, October 27 and was open to Fogolar
members, families, friends and the community. The weather may
have deterred some people from coming out, but we still had 50
happy children and their families brave the cold and rainy weath-
er. The children were able to make some spooky Halloween
lantern crafts, decorate a small pumpkin to take home, and of
