Local Voices Event: Peter Fortunato Reads From His New Novel Carnevale

BorgWarner East

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

6:00pm - 7:30pm

Peter Fortunato grew up in Wappingers Falls and Poughkeepsie, New York at a family run restaurant and resort much like the Villa Giustovera.  His father was a stage magician and singer and his mother an extraordinary seamstress and cook. His grandparents and their friends were his earliest connection not only to Italy but also to the history of the Hudson Valley.  Peter is a poet, painter, performer, ceremony maker, and hypnotherapist, and recently retired from teaching at Cornell and Ithaca College.  He has been a Buddhist for many years, as well as a shaman, Reiki master practitioner, and Tarot mage.
