Becoming America’s Stories

Welcome to Becoming America’s Stories series

Follow the Taglias, an immigrant family from Sicily, as they live and create a new home in the Lower East Side tenements, 1911.

Book 1, Daily Bread, October 2020

    It is 1911. Crammed into a three-room flat in a Mott Street tenement, the large Taglia family needs all the help they can muster. Spunky songbird Lily wants to help by baking Daily Bread at the bakery like big sister, Margaret. But Margaret says Lily is just a little kid, and there is more to baking Daily Bread than height and an artist’s heart. Lily learns to navigate in a grown-up world when facing bullies, disasters, dotty bakers, and treacherous streets to cross by herself.

Stay tuned for launch events and where you can buy Daily Bread.
