In Hartford Seminary Library, Immigrant Finds Haven To Overcome Challenges

“Shortly before 9 a.m., Claudia Mazzucco slips out of her Putnam Street apartment and begins her daily 40-minute walk.She routinely carries a bag filled with a few books and DVDs to the Hartford Seminary library, where she goes every Monday through Friday, and sometimes Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to as late as 8 p.m., before she walks home to watch “All in the Family.”Mazzucco, a 49-year-old Argentine native, is an aspiring writer and editor but doesn’t have internet access at home, doesn’t own a cellphone, and doesn’t drive. Her lifeline to her life’s work is at the seminary, which has become her second home and a place where she’s both edited a book — just published this year — and met some of her first local friends.” (via Hartford Courant)
