Mary Ellen Lisciandra of Wisconsin Rapids will discuss and sign copies of her book, "Stolen Lives," from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at BookWorld, 414 S. Central Ave.

Lisciandra is a native of New York. She graduated from Jamaica High School in Queens, N.Y., before attending Suffolk County Community College. She spent 15 years in nursing in New York and Florida before moving to Wisconsin Rapids. She started writing her book 25 years ago, then stopped, and started working on it a couple of years ago after she retired and moved to Wisconsin Rapids.

"Stolen Lives" was inspired by her interest in Prohibition-era Chicago. The fictional story is set in Chicago in the 1920s. Characters are based on gangsters of that era. It is about choices, lost morality and a dangerous mix of power, greed and revenge. For more information, go to www.maryellenlisciandra.wordpress.com or find "Stolen Lives The Book" on Facebook.
