In honor of Valentine's Day, Twin Cities author Janet Graber read from her debut adult novel, The Sting of Love, at a virtual event being sponsored by Next Chapter Booksellers of St. Paul, Minnesota on Feb. 16. ( A preview story about the event published in the Feb. 14 Pioneer Press).
When The Sting of Love begins, Georgina is about to visit her ather in England to celebrate his 77th birthday, decades after he fought in WWII. She is astonished when he asks if she will accompany him back to Trieste in Northern Italy. He had always refused to set foot in Europe again. What changed? And why now?
Captain James Drummond survived the battlefields of North Africa and Italy. Instead of his anticipated return home to wife and four-year-old daughter whom he had yet to meet, he was assigned to the grim task of military occupation in Trieste. On a summer patrol in 1945 in the disputed hills above Trieste, he encountered a group of Yugoslav partisans, bathing. When he glimpsed a woman emerging from the pool, water cascading down her body, a new conflict emerges with no clear lines, one he had to navigate alone. The war-weary Captain was faced with heart-wrenching choices.
Meanwhile, Georgina faces her own demons—a stale marriage, a secret affair, and her father's new revelations. Weaving historical facts with fictional characters, The Sting of Love moves seamlessly between Georgina's tumultuous life and that of her father in the aftermath of WWII, viewed through the lens of their several weeks together in Trieste.

An ice sculptor spent part of the day on Feb. 11 at The Waters of Highland Park in St. Paul, carving giant blocks of ice into the shape of a castle, and two media outlets showed up to share the event with their audiences.
The ice carving made the front page of the Pioneer Press newspaper, and was also featured on the evening news.... on KSTP Television, the ABC affiliate in Minneapolis.
While the artist was hard at work, some residents stepped out on their balconies to watch. Those whose apartments don’t face the courtyard where the work was underway were able to step outside and watch. Work on the castle was in preparation for a visit planned for Saturday, February 20, 2021 by members of the Royal Winter Carnival Court. The entire Court is expected to turn out for a knighting ceremony for residents. Prior to their arrival, residents will have voted for a King and Queen of the community.
Two media outlets in the Pittsburgh market covered a pre Valentine's Day party at The Waters of Wexford, a senior living community in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, which is just outside Pittsburgh. Television station KDKA ran a story the evening of the Feb. 10 event, and The Tribune-Review publsihed a newspaper story the next day.
The event got underway around Noontime on Feb. 10 with the delivery of hundreds of flowers. They were immediately presented to the community’s centenarians who are each celebrating significant birthdays in the very near future. Elise Renk turns 103 in March. Mary Cassesse turns 103 in August, and Pauline Kadliak turns 102 in October.
Flowers by Gerard in nearby Cranberry Township donated the flowers to them, and to Betty and Gene Howell, who celebrtate their 71st Valentine's Day together this year.
In addition to the flower delivery and presentation, the “Day of Love” also featured an hour-long concert by the award-winning musical group Stellare Strings.
Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day about romance. It’s also about showing people how much you care, and residents and staff at Avidor Edina, a 55+ active adult community in Edina, Minnesota showed their love for the community by partnering with Memorial Blood Centers to put on a blood drive.
KSTP Telvision was there as residents, staff members and members of the community rolled up their sleeves to give the gift of life.
