Interview with Author Adriana Trigiani!

Interview- October 2010

1.How long have you been writing?

 I've been writing all of my life, or at least it seems 
that way. I was an avid reader as a girl, and in earnest, set out to write poetry ar-ound 
the age of 13.  It was terrible, but it didn't matter.                     I was writing.

 It's the story of Viola Chesterton, a 14 year old

a job in a foreign country, they send her to boardi-ng school for a year in South Bend, Indiana.

3.I see you love to cook, What is your #1 favorite recipe?  

Spaghetti with a fresh tomato

dice up garlic in olive oil. Throw in the tomatoes and a pat of butter. Stir  and add salt til
