Marlana DeMarco Hogan, a retired Italian teacher and the child of Italian immigrants, has completed her new book “Growing Up in the Torrone Zone”: a charming and inviting tale about an Italian family’s favorite holiday custom: making torrone.
Hogan writes, “‘Growing Up in the Torrone Zone’ is a story about a hardworking little boy and the joy he finds while helping his family to make torrone, a traditional Italian candy, for the annual town festival that takes place atop the small mountain town he calls home. Every step is filled with fun and excitement, from going down the mountain to buy the torrone ingredients to preparing the delicious candy treat. Treasured memories are made with family and friends…in the torrone zone.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Marlana DeMarco Hogan’s adorable tale follows a young boy as he eagerly helps his parents make torrone for the festival. This is something he looks forward to every year and a tradition that he truly treasures – one that he plans to pass down to his children and grandchildren someday. But this isn’t just a children’s story; it is inspired by the author’s own family.
Marlana DeMarco Hogan’s father knew her mother was the one for him when she walked into his family kitchen to borrow a weigh scale as he was making torrone for their town’s annual festival. A heartwarming story told over and over again with love at family gatherings, Hogan included it. “Growing Up in the Torrone Zone” is a love letter to her immigrant parents and Italian heritage.
