Program Description

Event Details

Join Kentucky author Angela Correll in conversation with former Kentucky Poet Laureate Richard Taylor about her new release, Restored in Tuscany: A True Story of Facing Loss, Finding Beauty, and Living Forward in Hope.

In Restored in Tuscany, Angela is under a deadline to finish her second book, anxiously approaching her fiftieth birthday, and still reeling from a string of painful losses when she and her husband follow a dream and buy an ancient house inside a tiny Tuscan village. She soon realizes that her dream home needs more than a little TLC—this is a full-scale renovation that will stretch her patience (and budget) to the limit.

Follow Angela’s journey as she restores her home to its former glory and heals her heart in the process. Along the way, you’ll experience all the charm and romance of Tuscany—leisurely meals with new friends, interesting and loveable locals, exquisite art and architecture, and the beauty and splendor of the Mediterranean.

A book signing will follow, with copies available for purchase from Poor Richard's Books.

Sponsored by the Kentucky Book Festival and PSPL.

Angela Correll is the author of the award-winning May Hollow Trilogy (GroundedGuarded, and Granted). This fiction series has been adapted to the stage for sold-out audiences at the Pioneer Playhouse, Kentucky's oldest outdoor theater. She and her husband Jess are the founders of Wilderness Road Hospitality, a collective of charming lodging, dining, and retail establishments located mainly in her historic hometown of Stanford, Kentucky. In addition, they renovate historic properties in Italy for guest use while regularly stumbling through Italian lessons.
