Guests in attendance will enjoy reminiscing with descendants and local residents with wine, light hors d’oeuvres and an unveiling of “Images of America: Little Italy,” a book by Chris Dorer.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at An Enchanting Evening on 29300 Highway 300. The cost is $12 per person. Guests can purchase tickets at the door.
