The Store: The Success of an Immigrant Family in the Face of Personal Tragedy and National Economic Depression
The Store is a loving look back at a very important part of the author's life. Joe Giattini takes readers back in time, to when his parents moved out of the city and started a new life for their family. After Paul opened his barbershop, Mamie got the entrepreneurial bug herself, and thus The Store was born. People from all over town visited the store for everything from cigars to candy. Dr. Giattini leads readers on a wonderful, heartwarming journey through days past in The Store.
