Dr. Gilbert Gigliotti
Constitution Room, Memorial Hall
The CLASS-ic Sinatra is an evening celebrating the life, music, and movies of Ol' Blue Eyes, with CCSU's own Frank expert, Gil Gigliotti. The small cost of $20 will support the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) scholarship fund and include hors d'oeuvres, coffee, and tea. A cash bar will also be available to toast the Birthday Boy!
Dr. Gilbert L. Gigliotti is a professor of English and Latin at Central Connecticut State University and the host for more than two decades of "Frank, Gil, and Friends" every Tuesday morning on WFCS 107.7 FM. He earned his PhD in comparative literature at The Catholic University of America. His books on Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra belie his more traditional academic interests in American Puritans like Cotton Mather and Edward Taylor, the late 18th-century writers The Connecticut Wits, and the literature of ancient Greece and Rome.
