Chicken Soup for the Soul reminds us what already makes our country great, with true, personal stories from real Americans
Local award-winning author Jackie Minniti's story is featured in The Spirit of America. Granddaughter of Italian immigrant, Minniti recalls how proud she was to become a citizen and vote in her first election. She dresses up every year to vote and recognized it as the privilege that it is. Minniti is a columnist for The Island Reporter in St. Petersburg, FL and is a previous contributor to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
The book's author and Chicken Soup of the Soul's publisher Amy Newhart has traveled extensively including in third world countries and feels so privileged to live in the United States. She says in her own story in the book, “My ancestors could have moved somewhere else. But they moved here. And I get to be an American. It’s not something I take for granted.”
