“…If there is one thing I hope my books do always and forever, it’s that they honor working people.” –Adriana Trigiani

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our website!


It was a joy to see you all on the Kiss Carlo tour! Fifty cities and counting…thank you for coming to see me, and thank you to the fabulous ladies who hosted me in libraries, bookstores, specialty shops and online signings. Love you all! We’ll see you soon as the Kiss Carlo paperback tour commences in January 2018.

Our family cookbook, co-written with Mary Trigiani is everywhere! The dazzling new edition is a kitchen friendly, sturdy paperback, has new recipes, photographs and stories from Italy to Big Stone Gap. Please check the Meet Adriana page for appearances!

The Origin Project is thriving! We have grown from 40 students six years ago in my beloved hometown to 1200 students in a variety of schools in southwest Virginia. We’ve locked arms with my honorary sisters, (thank you Jenn, Robin and Laura) to bring you fabulous beauty products that support the program, perfect for year round gifts- and your beauty arsenal: check them out at kisscarlonow.com. All proceeds go to help our students- read more about the in school writing program here. Nancy Bolmeier Fisher (our exec director and co-founder) has been honored, with the Project, by the Virginia Commission for the Humanities. Congrats everyone!

Coming in the fall of 2018 is a new novel! I’m immersed in the world of a new cast of characters- can’t wait to share them with you!
