About the Video Presentation:
A Serenade is a piece of music performed at night to a lady from below her balcony by a lover.  Sometimes these tranquil moments create conflicts becoming the essence of operatic situations. This video will present serenades from diverse performances that convey lyric beauty, dramatic encounter and humorous entanglement.

    A special Author Visit 

    “Hotel of the Siren” presented by author Antoinette Carone
    In-person event on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7 pm
    A limited number of books will be available for sale at this event – a great holiday gift! 

    “Hotel of the Siren” is a work of literary fiction set mostly in Naples, Italy. Although it is the story of lovers, Naples itself is also a protagonist. In Naples, reality differs from appearance, fate operates relentlessly, and expectations are overturned.

    The lovers’ story takes place sometime in the late 20th century but before cell phones and the internet became essential to daily life. Lucy, an artist’s wife, is unexpectedly widowed. At his funeral, Lucy watches a woman wearing a green scarf stand over his grave. While cleaning his studio, Lucy discovers an airline ticket to Naples, Italy. Her husband was planning to leave with his model, Mina. Lucy uses the ticket and goes to Naples instead.

    There, Lucy reverts to her true name, Lucia. She resides in Hotel of the Siren, occupying one floor of an 18th-century building. Here she begins an affair with Antonio. There are things Lucia does not know about him, however. One is that Antonio’s father is plotting to acquire this building from its owner. The second is that Mina and Antonio are relatives.

    In “Hotel of the Siren,” Naples is central to Lucia’s journey. The way of life and the history of this ancient city frame the narrative and elucidate the culture, revealing the city’s contrasts and contradictions.
