I believe in the power of story.  Tales that are shared through and within generations define our heritage, provide us with empathy over transgressions and celebrate our adventures. They are as essential as the food that feeds our bodies. Stories fuel our souls.

The best stories are told around the table. Listening, telling and retelling memories add spice to our nourishment. Versions of the truth are flushed out as we pass the sauce, laugh out loud, sip the wine, and dab stained lips.

So take a seat, eat something, and join in as stories are served around the table.


Antoinette Truglio Martin is the author of Hug Everyone You Know: A Year of Community, Courage, and Cancer. The memoir is a wimpy patient’s journey through her first year of breast cancer treatment.
