Author Event: Margo Candela
Please join us for an event with fiction author and SF State Journalism alumna Margo Candela.
Her fifth novel released on August 9, 2022, "The Neapolitan Sisters," sparks conversations about things the Latino community don’t generally talk about. The Neapolitan Sisters explores some serious topics, but at its core, it’s about the strong bonds of sisterhood. Told in alternating points of view, it's a funny and entertaining novel about the weeks leading up to the wedding of the youngest of three very different sisters who reunite at their East L.A. childhood home, and confront the secrets from their past.
Margo Candela was born and raised in Los Angeles and began her writing career when she joined Glendale Community College’s student newspaper. She transferred to San Francisco State University as a journalism major, and upon graduation began writing for websites and magazines before writing her first two novels, Underneath It All and Life Over Easy. She returned to Los Angeles to raise her son and wrote More Than This and Good-bye to All That. The Neapolitan Sisters is her fifth novel and her first after a decade-long hiatus from writing. She now lives in San Francisco. Visit MargoCandela.com for more information.
