A writer and dancer based in Port Townsend, Sanelli will read from her memoir, The Immigrant's Table, at the store at 4681 Sequim-Dungeness Way.
Admission is free, and coffee and tea will be served.
Planning to join Sanelli for a dance segment is 16-year-old Alexis Ottoway-Chung, a student at Sequim's Aspire Academy of Expressive Arts, as well as another guest: actor Charles Duncan as “Aretha Franklin.”
The Immigrant's Table is Sanelli's personal account of weaving Old World and New World together, as a first-generation American born to parents from Italy.
In her performance Saturday, Sanelli will introduce her family in the most Italian of settings: around a table. Then, she will reveal some old recipes — for meals and for spirited interaction.
Sanelli is the author of eight books, including another memoir, Among Friends (2009); the essay collection Falling Awake (2007); and Craving Water (2004), a book of poems.
She is also a columnist for the Peninsula Daily News and has contributed to The Seattle Times and National Public Radio.
