in the 1st of a Series of Books
Staten Island, New York – Author and journalist, Angie Mangino, brings 17th history to life in the first in a series of books highlighting people and events in Tottenville and their impact on Staten Island, New York City, US, and World history. Initially published only in Kindle edition, numerous requests for a paperback edition were answered with the recent release of a print edition on February 14, 2021, a Valentine gift to her readers.
In 17th Century Tottenville History Comes Alive, author Angie Mangino, looks at the history of Tottenville, Staten Island, NY and the impact of the people and events that took place there from a local and global perspective. She then invites you to imagine what it would be like to experience these events yourself.
More than a list of historical facts, Mangino takes you by the hand and introduces you to the important people of the era. Historical facts become interesting stories as she leads you through the events that occurred in this small enclave of Staten Island, New York and shows you their impact on a global scale.
As to why she wrote the book, Mangino says, “We learn from the past to better live the future.”
