Leonard Covello’s The Heart is the Teacher was rereleased
with the newer edition including an afterward written by Dr. Gerald Meyer
The people at Hostos were kind enough to throw an event in the Vito Marcantonio Room on May Day, 2014 and the event was a success.
Professor Meyer gave a lecture on the book and the background of Covello and Italian East Harlem during the 1930’s–1950’s. After this, LuLu LoLo Pascale (who personally knew Covello) and Roberto Ragone performed dramatic readings from the book. The Vito Marcantonio Forum thanks everyone who helped put together the event at Hostos and everyone who attended.
