Paul Canonici did a signing at Cotton Row Bookstore on today for his new book "The Delta Italians II." "The Italian immigrants were recruited as workers for the cotton plantations of the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and presented family stories of the early immigrants. My current book ‘The Delta Italians Vol. II,’ is a supplement to the first book and contains family stories of other Italians who settled the Delta, other than those recruited for the cotton plantations. The current book contains approximately 300 pages and 443 photographs of early immigrants," he explained.
