I was thrilled when none other than the legendary director of the Godfather movies said this about the book:
“Russell Shorto's Smalltime draws a convincing portrait of a time when Italian Americans weren't permitted to live in certain neighborhoods or rise too high in the political firmament. This remembrance of his grandfather's and great uncle's lives - of slots and pinball machines and places like the Melodee Lounge and City Cigar - mixes great history and lovely, lingering memories: 'long conversations about spaghetti sauce and aunts who kissed you on the lips; those were the ways we were Italian.’” – FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA
Using my experience in researching Smalltime, I created a family history workshop that I taught at Baruch College in New York City.
Now I've taken all of that experience and put it into an online course. Join me and learn the ins and outs, the tips and tricks, of how to Tell Your Family Story!
