A book inspired by a true story of love and women’s resilience during the rise of fascism and WWII.

About this Event

Under the Light of the Italian Moon is an historical biographical fiction novel and the first book from author, Jennifer Anton.

Spanning over two decades, the novel tells the story of Nina Argenta, the daughter of a strong-willed midwife in northern Italy, who falls in love with Pietro Pante, a boy who emigrates to the coal mines of America.

As their love grows, Mussolini drives the country into chaos and an alliance with Hitler. Nina must survive Nazi occupied Italy, in the hopes of saving her family and being reunited with Pietro again.

In this talk Jennifer will discuss the impetus behind writing the novel, fourteen years of research, key themes and why the topics in the book are so relevant in today’s political atmosphere.

Under the Light of the Italian Moon can be pre-ordered online, or you can get it via your local bookshop or request from your library branch.
