Betty MacDonald Fan Club Honor Member Letizia Mancino created a magical gallery - Hommage a Betty MacDonald.
We are so delighted. Letizia's artwork is fascinating. We got so many mails from all over the world especially from Japan. Thanks a Million for doing this!

We enjoyed Letizia Mancino's very witty and excellent Betty MacDonald essay very much.
The international Betty MacDonald Fans are very grateful and happy because it has been published in several languages. What a gift!

One of Letizia's many fans is our one and only Betty MacDonald Memorial Award winner and Betty MacDonald Fan Club founder - Wolfgang Hampel - who adores Letizia Mancino's artwork and books. It doesn't surprise us at all.

Thank you so much for creating this magical Hommage a Betty MacDonald.

Letizia Mancino:

I love islands in North America: Though I know only the island „Mount Desert“ in Maine and not the island at the Pacific Coast – Betty MacDonald's Vashon Island is near Seattle – however things seem to me to be very similar: Magic landscape, cosmic influences and thousands of small odd bits of land swimming in the wide ocean. Can they really swim? It looks as if they were wearing a life jacket around the lushgreen of the woods...

What a lady!

Happy birthday dear Letizia Mancino!

Have the most wonderful birthday ever.

Many ESC fans from all over the world are so very sad because we lost Joy Fleming - one of the best singers ever.
