POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 17, 2014 Page 5 A Frank De Pas=uale Venture o by Claude Marsilia TO THE VILLAGE SQUARE By Lionel Delevingne 145 Pages Published by Nouveau Monde Press Even before I read one word of this book I want to con- gratulate everyone respon- sible for designing and devel- oping such a stunning pre- sentation. After reading thousands of books I cannot remember a previous book with such outstanding pho- tographs that I believe will leave the reader gasping. Back to the book. Immedi- ately, Lionel Delevingne states authoritatively, the radioactive waste caused by the fission process remains for up to 250,000 years. Let that sink in. He explains how he learned from a May Day demonstration held in the United States in 1971, "that the power of a peaceful but Vocal citizenry could affect national policy." He continues, "this book is about power, not just nuclear power but also the power of a com- munity to force action and make a change ... no construction of a nuclear power plant has been commissioned in the United States for 30 years." Looking at the photos of, in particular, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters one Author Lionel Delevinge cannot help but lead to the following conclusion, says Delevingne.

Photos of the people of Seabrook being assaulted by the police, express the nega- tivism that prevailed. I found it impressive how Lionel captured the grim expres- sions on many senior citi- zens that were present who many considered a youthful outrage. A photo of middle- aged man with an unrelent- ing expression holding a sign that read simply, BAD will not be forgotten easily. The victim's photos can never be described properly, literally. They can only be used to remember as an his- toric failure in time. The silent photographs are a reflection of an extraordi- nary photographer with a keen eye. This book has left me with dire feelings that are dreadful and unforgiv- ing. Lionel Delevingne photographs will fill you with over power- ing impressions that the mightiest words cannot. This book's photos capture the essence of man's sometimes fruitless efforts to improve the health of the world. I plan to store this book safely in my library, but I cannot help feeling that it might just melt down.

The pro- ceeds of this lovely musical event provide a $1,500 scholarship to a high school senior. Pirandello President Rosario Cascio wel- comed everyone to this year's program and thanked Filippo Frattaroli for his great gen- erosity. The entire evening was then de- voted to members of the audience joining together in singing the timeless melodies beautifully accompanied by the joyful mu- sic of Vincent Amara.
