Left Coast Writers®: Audrey Fielding - Salento by 5 (San Francisco)

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 6:00pm

Salento by 5: Friendship, Food, Music and Travel Within the Heel of Italy's Boot is a collection of richly woven stories, travel tips, drawings and recipes written about the Southern Italian area of Salento by five authors: three local Italians from Salento and two travelers from California. A friendship that begins in the Rome airport, migrates to Salento at the southern tip of Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot), blossoms over food and wine (of course), and culminates in a narrative filled with nostalgic and personal recollections of Salento’s history, culture, and its unique people. The five authors are The Traveler; The Raconteur; The Sketcher; The Music Maker; and The Cook.

Audrey Fielding is The Traveler. She captures the enchantment of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, the whisper of wind in the olive groves and the tastes of earthy greens, ear-shaped pasta, and bowls of steaming mussels. As editor/writer Audrey was introduced to Italy on a teaching sabbatical in 1992. Serendipitous events brought her to Salento in 2003 and ever since, she has returned yearly to an apartment facing the sea.
