Nobody tells a story quite like the author of Big Stone Gap, Milk Glass Moon, Lucia Lucia and many others — and there are few authors who create characters so beloved as hers are.  Whether she's crafting a contemporary story for young adults or a weaving a family saga that stretches back decades, Adriana Trigiani draws deeply on her Italian-American family life and small-town Appalachian roots to deliver stories of ordinary people whose quests for fulfillment in love, work, and art deepen into epics of the everyday.  Trigiani sat down in our studio with Barnes & Noble's Miwa Messer just before the publication of her brand new novel Tony's Wife, to talk about her fiction, her education work in her native Appalachia, and the books that inspire her.
