Tuesday, November 27th (2pm—4pm PST) Lake Wildwood Community Center, 11255 Cottontail Way, Penn Valley, CA 95946. Cultural Presentation - Karen Haid, award-winning author of Calabria: The Other Italy, will share the beauties and wonders of Calabria, a fascinating region at the heart of the Mediterranean, to Lake Wildwood members and guests on November 27th from 2-4 p.m. in the Lake Room.

Her non-fiction book, praised by Publisher’s Weekly as “an intoxicating blend of humor, joy and reverence for this area in Italy’s deep south,” draws on her four-year Italian experience, living and working in this lesser-known corner of the bel paese. The author’s illustrated presentation will explore the history, culture, landscape and culinary specialties of Calabria, and in this special appearance, Karen will also give a personal glimpse into Italian Christmas traditions.
