"Finding Yia Yia: A Greek Tragedy"
Tuesday, February 10, 3:30 - 5:00pm

In 1935, 30 year old Greek immigrant and mother of two young children, Mary Derecas was brutally stabbed to death in her New York City apartment.  More than 75 years later, Mary's granddaughter Angela Derecas set out to learn about the grandmother she never knew; locate the unmarked grave in a Potter's Field; and grapple with the shocking revelation of the murderer's identity.

Angela will join us to read from and discuss her forthcoming book, Finding Yia Yia: A Greek Tragedy, in which she shares the story of her attempts to untangle her family's secrets and honor the memory of her grandmother - often in the face of fierce resistance from her own father and aunt, the murder victim's children. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30; program begins at 4:00pm. 

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Ave, Larchmont. To reach Russell Hall, use the Forest Park Avenue door of the church near Wendt Avenue.
