2nd Act: Eric LanzieriFebruary 23, 2019
In 2016, at the age of 53, Eric Lanzieri wrote a book for the first time in his life. “A Story for Louise” describes the details of his paternal grandparents’ emigration from Italy to Waterbury in the early 1900’s, and his grandmother’s return to her home town in 1946. The book explains the various circumstances which brought Eric there, and culminated in a miraculous coincidence which allowed him to find his relatives.

2ND ACT was imagined as a monthly speakers’ series featuring ordinary people talking about the extraordinary things they are doing in the 2ND (half) ACT of their lives. Part inspirational, aspirational, experiential and just plain comical, these after-50 life stories may even ignite your own imagination to become part of what is becoming a growing community of 2ND ACTers!
Stories will be 45–60 minutes in length followed by Q&A with the audience. Light fare will be provided before each presentation in the series.
