In Conversation with Stevie Van Zandt

On Sunday, October 3rd, the Coccia Institute had the honor of launching our partnership with the Montclair Literary Festival where we presented a joint talk with Stevie Van Zandt, former actor on the Sopranos (Silvio Dante) and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band guitarist. The event featured a lively discussion focusing on Van Zandt’s newest memoir, “Unrequited Infatuations,” which recounts his personal story of his childhood in New Jersey and his personal struggles throughout his career.

Proceeds from this event benefitted Succeed2gether, a Montclair-based non-profit 501(c) organization that addresses unequal access to educational resources for low-income families and children from Montclair and Essex County, NJ.
