Finding Yia Yia – as told by Angela Derecas Taylor

angela 1I met Angela through the City of New Rochelle’s Mayor’s office, and have always known her to be both intelligent and competent in all of her endeavors. So, when I was invited to listen to her speak this past week at the Larchmont Avenue Church through an “At Home on the Sound” event,  it seemed like an easy decision to make.

ANgela 2The afternoon’s event commenced with tea, coffee and delicious home baked pastries and cakes at 3:30 p.m.,  with  Ellie Fredston ( one of the Directors),angela 4 introducing Angela.    Angela’s vivacity and gift of story telling won the audience of over 60 people, as she recounted her sad tale. She grew up loving her grand father, and did not know until after his death that he had murdered his young wife, stabbing her 43 times. Angela’s perspective on her family’s dynamics changed, and as she grew older, she wanted to learn as much as she could about the tragedy. Since I could never recount the story as well as Angela, I will just direct you to her site, “Finding Yia Yia-  A Greek Tragedy” so you can learn directly from her what her long journey has involved, and how it has evolved into a enthralling, riveting  story.

Thank you Angela for sharing your story, and telling it so well.

Larchmont is GREAT!
