SJCPL Online Book Club: The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames

Grames's vivid and moving debut follows its heroine from a childhood in the early 20th century in a tiny Calabrian mountain village, to her family's immigration to America when she is 19. Beautiful, smart, and unyielding, Stella Fortuna grows up in a mountain village in early 20th-century Italy, where she is suspected of being cursed. The family immigrates to America before World War II, and Stella continues protecting not-as-sharp little sister Tina, with their estrangement in old age framing the narrative.

The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna is available in print, ebook, and eaudiobook formats.
