LISA SCOTTOLINE – Eternal: A Novel
Sunday, March 21st | 8:00 PM EDT

Set in Rome during the ventennio, the twenty years of Mussolini’s rise and fall, Eternal centers on Elisabetta, Marco, and Sandro, who grew up as the best of friends despite their differences. Now, their relationships are changing—as is the world around them. In the autumn of 1937, Mussolini asserts his power, aligning Italy’s Fascists with Hitler’s Nazis and changing the very laws that govern Rome. The Nazis invade and occupy Rome, perpetrating new atrocities against the city’s Jews, culminating in a final, horrific betrayal. Against this backdrop, the intertwined fates of Elisabetta, Marco, Sandro, and their families will be decided. Unfolding over decades, Eternal is a saga of loyalty and loss, family and food, love and hate—all set in one of the world’s most beautiful cities at its darkest moment.

Tickets: $6 – virtual ticket, or $36 – one virtual ticket and one copy of the book (including shipping):
