Frank Morelli, No Sad Songs Tuesday, February 20, 7pm Following a family tragedy, 18-year-old Gabe LoScuda suddenly finds himself thrust into the role of caregiver for his ailing grandfather. Between the shopping trips and the doctor visits with Grandpa, Gabe and his friend John try to salvage their senior year, meet girls, and make the varsity baseball team. It doesn’t take long for Gabe to realize that going to school and looking after a grandfather with Alzheimer’s is more work than he ever imagined. And when long-lost Uncle Nick appears on the scene, Gabe soon finds that living with Nick and Grandpa is like babysitting two grown men. Aside from John, the only person who truly understands Gabe is Sofia, a punk-rocking rebel he meets at the veteran’s hospital. When these three unlikely friends are faced with a serious dilemma, will they do what it takes to save Grandpa? If there’s a chance of preserving the final shreds of Grandpa’s dignity, Gabe may have to make the most gut-wrenching decision of his life—and there’s no way out. Frank Morelli’s writing has appeared in more than thirty publications, including The Saturday Evening Post, Cobalt Review, Indiana Voice Journal, Jersey Devil Press, and Philadelphia Stories. His sports themed column—“Peanuts & Crackerjacks”—appears monthly at Change Seven Magazine. He lives in High Point, North Carolina. Visit frankmorelliwrites.com.
