Books on Family Connections and Dream Realization Were the Attraction during the AJC Book Festival
Dr. Rosalie H. Contino, Ph.D. displayed her books last September 4-6 in Georgia.
“I want everyone to hang on to their dreams. They may not come true today but if you work hard for it, they can still come true tomorrow. Don’t ever lose hope and believe in yourself”
Do you have a dream? We should hold onto our dreams for they keep us alive. They push us towards the path of happiness and wonder. More importantly, they don’t come in expiration dates. If you’re not convinced, then read the inspirational tale of Dr. Rosalie H. Contino in her book entitled Born to Create.
When she reached the age of 40, she had the urge to pursue her passion to create. So, she changed her career path; from being a successful seventh-grade English teacher to her newfound career in the arts. Now, she’s enjoying her creative career as a costume designer, costume historian, playwright, and lecturer.
“I want everyone to hang on to their dreams. They may not come true today but if you work hard for it, they can still come true tomorrow. Don’t ever lose hope and believe in yourself”, Rosalie said.
Aside from this inspirational autobiography, Rosalie has also published another book entitled Bob: As Life Goes On. The book is about the story of how she and her brother battled the challenges of life as a family. Their journey started when Bob Contino was diagnosed with mild schizophrenia. He was forced to retire and Rosalie has to temporarily stop all her plans in life so she can take care of her brother. Everything got complicated when Bob was diagnosed with a number of physical ailments. But instead of pulling them apart, the illness pulled the siblings together.
These are two different books with different themes. But all the same, both books will touch your heart as it tackles about realizing your dreams and being at your family’s side when they need you the most.
