Christine Simon, author of THE PATRON SAINT OF SECOND CHANCES - a virtual Readings from Oconomowaukee event
Readings from Oconomowaukee presents an evening with Christine Simon, author of The Patron Saint of Second Chances. In conversation with Lisa Baudoin of Books & Company and Daniel Goldin of Boswell Book Company.

Vacuum repairman and self-appointed mayor of Prometto, Italy (population 212) Signor Speranza has a problem: unless he can come up with 70,000 euros to fix the town’s pipes, the water commission will shut off the water to the village and all its residents will be forced to disperse. So in a bid to boost tourism and revenue he spreads a harmless rumor that movie star Dante Rinaldi will be filming his next project nearby. Unfortunately, the plan works a little too well, and soon everyone in town wants to be a part of the fictional film.

The early praise for Simon’s novel is glowing! From Julia Claiborne Johnson, author of Better Luck Next Time: "The Patron Saint of Second Chances is a rare treasure: both hilariously funny and beautifully written. I was sad to say goodbye to these delightful, large-hearted characters when I turned the final page. Sequel, please."

Christine Simon grew up in a very large and very loud Italian family and now lives with her husband and four children. The Patron Saint of Second Chances is her first novel.
