My name is Gina Fabiano and I am a proud Italo-Canadian with a passion for literature, music, fine food and everything Italian! I am the oldest of 8 children and growing up I was told it was my “JOB” to keep them all entertained while mom prepared dinner for the family and dad tended to the large vegetable garden which would ultimately produce the culinary delights of our childhood memories and my passion for cooking.
Hence storytelling was the best form of entertainment for my younger siblings especially scary stories told in the dark under a blanket! BOO! This of course was great practice for my own 3 children who in turn today retell the stories with a grin. Over the past 40 years the Toronto Public Library has offered me the privilege of serving diverse communities throughout the City of Toronto.
I continue to take advantage of every opportunity to network with my community and to share and promote programs, such as book clubs, literacy and cultural programs, to name just a few.
