Linda Cardillo is an award-winning author who writes about the old country and the new, the tangle and embrace of family and finding courage in the midst of loss. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as a “Fresh Face,” Linda has built a loyal following with her previous works of fiction—the novels Dancing on Sunday Afternoons (2007, 2016) and Across the Table (2010), novellas in the anthologies The Valentine Gift (2008) and A Mother’s Heart (2009) and the illustrated children’s book The Smallest Christmas Tree (2013). In addition, Dancing on Sunday Afternoons was included in a bibliography of the immigrant experience for The National Endowment for the Arts program The Big Read.
