Center for Italian Studies Welcomes ‘Dinner with DiMaggio’ Author


Dr. John Positano, co-author of the memoir Dinner with DiMaggio, will give a book presentation on Thursday, November 30, at 5:30 pm at the Center for Italian Studies, Melville Library, Room E4340.

Hear first-hand about the decade-long friendship between Dr. Rock Positano and Joe DiMaggio, which began in 1990 when Dr. Positano, a foot and ankle specialist, successfully treated the baseball champ’s heel spur injury. The stories and experiences shared with Dr. Rock Positano and written about with his brother, Dr. John Positano, create an intimate portrait of one of the great stars of baseball and icons of the 20th century.

Books will be available for purchase and autographing. This event is free and open to the public.
