FALLBROOK – A book talk on “The Four Seasons,” authored by Laurel Corona, will be held at the Fallbrook Library on Feb. 6 at 1 p m.
The book is the story of two sisters who were abandoned as babies on the steps of Ospedale della Pieta, Venice’s world-famous foundling hospital and musical academy. High-spirited and rebellious, Chiaretta marries into a great aristocratic Venetian family and eventually becomes one of the most powerful women in Venice. Maddalena becomes a violin virtuoso and Antonio Vivaldi’s muse. The Four Seasons is a rich, literary imagination of the world of 18th century Venice and the lives and loves of two extraordinary women.
A second book talk by Laurel Corona on her yet-to-be released “The Map Maker’s Daughter” is also scheduled for early spring and is a lead-up to the Friends of the Fallbrook Luncheon in the spring where Corona will be the featured speaker. More information about the second book talk, the luncheon date, time and location will be published as soon as it is available.
Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Ave.
