People create Cities presents Albuquerque’s Italian settlers

Nov 01, 2015 588

Albuquerque was built by those who came and stayed. Each wave of immigration brought new communities whose members built families, businesses, neighborhoods, and ultimately, a city. People Create Cities is a free speakers series sponsored by the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Library, Historic ABQ, Inc. and Oasis Albuquerque, offering a unique opportunity to learn the stories of the many peoples who made and continue to make Albuquerque's history every day.

Albuquerque's Italians and lovers of Italy won't want to miss Lynne Franchini Peckinpaugh's presentation about Italian immigrants' contributions to the development of the Duke City. Save the date to hear a member of one of Albuquerque's leading founding families tell their stories, offer insights and answer questions: Saturday, November 14, 10:30 – 12:00, Special Collections Library, 423 Central Ave. NE. Metered street parking is available in the area, or park at the vacant Pop 'n Taco across the street. For more information, contact Eileen O'Connell 505-848-1376.
