Julie Fierro at Diesel’s Bookstore

Come to the store to welcome Julia Fierro who will discuss and sign The Gypsy Moth Summer at her publication party. All are welcome and encouraged to join us!

It is the summer of 1992 and a gypsy moth invasion blankets Avalon Island, an inlet off the coast of Long Island, and becomes a relentless topic of island conversation and inescapable soundtrack of the season. When the only daughter of the island’s most prominent family returns, with her botanist husband and bi-racial children, fast and dangerous opinions form on both sides of the tracks. Many characters, each seeking his or her own refuge, escape and revenge, depict love, gaps in understanding, and the struggle to connect: within families, among friends, between neighbors, and entire generations.

Julie Fierro is a graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and founded The Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop in 2002, a creative home for more than 3,500 writers in New York City, Los Angeles and Online. Her debut novel was Cutting Teeth.

She eventually found a private drug rehabilitation program and dedicated her life to supporting women from similar situations. Her organization, A New Way of Life operates five safe homes in Los Angeles that offer a lifeline to women and their children.
