Old Bridge, NJ – June 2, 2017Rita Gigante, author of ‘The Godfather’s Daughter: An Unlikely Story of Love, Healing, and Redemption” will speak at the Old Bridge Public Library on Sat. June 17th at 2pm.

Rita Gigante’s family seemed like many others in her suburban NJ neighborhood. But they had a secret – her father was the notorious crime boss Vincent “the Chin” Gigante, the leader of the Genovese crime family in New York City.  However, she was kept in the dark about his underworld activities until she was 16.  Gigante will share her real-life father-daughter tale of betrayal and faith, violence and love, and talk about coming to terms with her father, her faith, and coming out to her family. Copies of the book will be available to purchase and a book signing will follow the presentation.
