“The STVCC Children’s Home Book Club kids love Adriana’s novels,” event organizer Catherine Brennan said. “Being able to help out local kids in need inspired me to facilitate her appearance and this fundraiser.”

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. and will include stories from Adriana that make up the book. Tickets are $50 and include a signed copy of “Kiss Carlo.”

An exclusive Patron Party will begin at 5:30 p.m. and includes an exclusive reception with Adriana, a gift bag, hors d’oeuvres with a cash bar, and access to the presentation. Patron Party tickets are $100.

“We are astonished by the generosity of Catherine and the other volunteers who have helped to put this event together,” STVCC CEO Andrea Seyka said. “Adriana’s accomplishments and willingness to give back to non-profit organizations sets a great example of philanthropy to our community.”

Adriana’s other popular works include “All the Stars in the Heavens,” “The Shoemaker’s Wife,” the “Big Stone Gap” series, the “Valentine Trilogy” and “Lucia, Lucia.” She also wrote and directed the film adaptation of “Big Stone Gap.”
