The Coronado Historical Association (CHA) hosts their monthly Wine & Lecture Series on Friday, Oct. 11, titled “Unavoidable Hope.” Join them as they invite Author, Professor Roger Sabbadini to discuss his book “Unavoidable Hope: A Jewish Soldier’s Fight to Save His Family from Fascism.” The book is a compelling true story of Italian Jewish refugee, Alessandro (Alex) Sabbadini, who escaped Fascist Italy to America on the eve of World War II, only to join the fight in Italy with the U.S. 5th Army. The personal nature of Alex Sabbadini’s story is quite poignant and has relevance to some of today’s immigration and other issues. The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. and the lecture commences 6 p.m. Cost for members is $15 and non-members are $18. The event takes place at 1100 Orange Avenue, seating is first come first served. Get tickets or for more information, visit or call 619-435-7242.
