Murder in Matera: A True Story of Passion, Family and Forgiveness in Southern Italy: Helene Stapinkski author talk

Writer Helene Stapinkski grew up hearing lurid stories of her great-great-grandmother Vita who had committed murder in southern Italy and fled to America with her three children. More than a century later, and over the course of ten years, Stapinski travels to Basilicata, a mountainous region in Italy's "instep", to discover the truth of what happened. The result is a fascinating account that is part memoir, part murder mystery and family saga.
