Author Peter Fortunato will read from and discuss his new book, Carnevale, at this online event. Register for the Zoom meeting here.
More about Carnevale:
The painter Guido Diamante is plunged into the mystery surrounding the apparent suicide of his rascal mentor at the Hudson River College. Exciting, heady times ensue as he reviews his own guilty past and traces his life through a labyrinth of adventures from the sexy, psychedelic 1960s to the financial crisis of 2008. Steeped in references to Renaissance art, alchemy, and the Tarot, Carnevale is a family saga, a satire of the art market and of faculty life, and the story of Guido’s love for his wayward cousin Tina, a psychic like him.
