Litchfield Historical Society Lecture: Italian American Women of Connecticut


South Street, Litchfield, CT 06759. Phone: 860-567-4501.

Join the Litchfield Historical Society on Sunday, September 13 at 3 p.m. for a lecture by author Anthony Riccio, who will be discussing his new book Farms, Factories, and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut. This oral history collection offers new insights into the Italian American experience, told from the women's perspective. In the first half of the twentieth century, Italian American women were born into a life of work. From as young as four or five years old, they were expected to assist in the house or on the farm, leaving school if necessary, to help support the family. Farms, Factories, and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut (Excelsior Editions/SUNY Press) offers a documentation of the rich history of Italian American working women in Connecticut as they resisted a claustrophobic, patriarchal society to become empowered as foreladies, union officials, and shop stewards. Their legacy lives on in this collection of tales of sacrifice and perseverance, often punctuated by laughter, and brimming with courage and determination. Lectures are free for members and $5 for non-members. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Payment is required at time of registration.
