Geri Livelli’s, ‘The Cameo,’ was published last year. It’s a story that spans portions of the 19th and 20th centuries and can be described as a work of historical fiction. While this is Geri’s first book she certainly is not unknown to Cranford and its residents. She was one of the founding members of the Hanson Park Conservancy and is a long-time member of Cranford’s Green Thumb Garden Club.
Geri sat down with Cranford Radio to talk about the book and some of her volunteer efforts in town. She’ll have a book signing at Periwinkle’s on Saturday, February 10 between 1 and 4 pm.
