UPCOMING COMMUNITY EVENTS


My American Dream: A Life of Love, Family, and Food

Tuesday, March 12th. 7 PM 

The Historic Theater

28 Chestnut Street

Portsmouth, NH 03801


7pm — Writers on a New England Stage event 
8pm — Post-show Reception for Director’s Club begins. This reception is open to Patron-level members and up. Kindly RSVP here.

The bestselling cookbook author, beloved and award-winning television personality, and hugely successful restaurateur, Lidia Bastianich comes to town to share her heartwarming, emotional, revelatory memoir—told with all her hallmark warmth and gusto. Leave with her favorite recipes in hand!

Lidia’s story begins with her upbringing in Pula, a formerly Italian city turned Yugoslavian under Tito’s communist regime. She enjoys a childhood surrounded by love and security—despite the family’s poverty—learning everything about Italian cooking from her beloved grandmother, Nonna Rosa. When the communist regime begins investigating the family, they flee to Trieste, Italy, where they spend two years in a refugee camp waiting for visas to enter the United States–an experience that will shape Lidia for the rest of her life. At age 12, Lidia starts a new life in New York. She soon begins working in restaurants as a young teenager, the first step toward the creation of her own American dream. And she tells in great, vivid detail the fulfillment of that dream: her close-knit family, her dedication and endless passion for food that ultimately leads to multiple restaurants, many cookbooks, and twenty years on public television as the host of her own cooking show. An absolute must-have/must-see for the millions of Lidia fans!
