Helene Stapinski

Brooklyn writer Helene Stapinski’s investigation of stories about her Southern Italian family and her formidable great-grandmother, Vita, led to some unexpected revelations, some of which she will share tonight as she speaks about her book, Murder in Matera: A True Story of Passion, Family, and Forgiveness in Southern Italy (now in paperback from Dey St Books).

"This book is many things: a gripping murder story, an ancestral journey, a tender yet funny reflection on motherhood and love of country, family, and food. But mostly it's just a total page turner. Helene Stapinski is incapable of delivering a dull moment." —Meghan Daum.
