In her memoir, “Ma Speaks Up,” actress Marianne Leone remembers her larger-than-life mother, who emigrated from Italy to raise a family in Nonantum and was widowed at a young age. Though Marianne’s girlhood is flooded with shame about growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, it’s equally packed with adventure, love, great cooking, and, above all, humor. In this program, Marianne describes life in “The Lake” in the 1960s, shares family stories, takes questions, and signs books. Learn more about local history from someone who lived it.
