<![CDATA[Book Talk & Signing by Arleen Mercorella]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/02/arleen-mercorella-book-talk-signing http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/08/02/arleen-mercorella-book-talk-signing Date: August 2, 2015

Written candidly by Frances’s daughter, Arleen Mercorella, A Matter of Survival: The Story of Frances is a testament to the ability to overcome life’s challenges—a true inspiration for those facing hardships of any type in their lives. Born to Italian immigrants in 1917; Frances’ father resented her for being a girl, and her mother resented her for being born at all. And when a rift in the family left the girl and her mother alone and penniless, things managed to get even worse: she was taken away to an orphanage, left in the care of stern nuns who never offered the hysterically crying six-year-old an ounce of comfort. This inspiring true story documents the incredible life of Frances, and how she has faced each instance of adversity and prejudice in her life armed with sweetness and grace.

Arleen Mercorella was born and raised in Queens, New York. In addition to her experiences in the business world, Arleen also completed several college writing courses, leading her to develop a style of her own and find success in a variety of business writing projects. Arleen also became a licensed New York City tour guide and started her own company out of her love for New York City and her passion for knowledge. For the past five years, Arleen and her husband have been retired and living in the Wilmington area of North Carolina.

Judith Guttman, President of Parkway Village Historical Society, will be presenting a lecture on the history of Parkway Village, an area of Queens. The 35-acre co-op community was built in the late 1940s, originally intended to house staff members of the United Nations. While proposals to designate Parkway as a landmark were rejected at least twice — in 1997 and 2000 — by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, it is now part of the National Register of Historic Places. “As a community struggling to survive and flourish in challenging economic times, it is gratifying for long-time Parkway residents like me to witness the official recognition of Parkway Village’s illustrious history,” said Guttman, “I’m proud to be a Villager.”
