Book Launch with Terri-Lynne DeFino at Byrd's Books

Join us for a fun afternoon as we celebrate the launch of Terri-Lynne DeFino's new book, Varina Palladino's Jersey Italian Love Story, on Sunday February 19th at 4pm. Registration suggested due to space.

About the book: 

An utterly delightful and surprising family drama—think Moonstruck and My Big Fat Greek Wedding set in New Jersey—about a boisterous, complicated Italian family determined to help their widowed mother find a new boyfriend.


About the author:  

Terri-Lynne DeFino was born and raised in New Jersey, but escaped to the wilds of Connecticut, where she still lives with her husband and her cats. She spends most days in her loft, in her woodland cabin along the river, writing about people she’s never met. Other days, she can be found slaying monsters with her grandchildren. If you knock on her door, she’ll most likely be wearing a tiara. She’ll also invite you in and feed you, because you can take the Italian girl out of Jersey, but you can’t take the Jersey Italian out of the girl.
