Premiere of the Award Winning Documentary Invisible Women Planned at Bella Fortuna North with author Jane Fortune

Great News!   It’s Another Premiere Party!  

Back by popular demand – it’s the Emmy award winning documentary based on Jane Fortune’s book Invisible Women.   Join us tonight for a television showing of the PBS Documentary Invisible Women, which was based on our co-owner Jane Fortune’s book, Invisible Women: Forgotten Artists of Florence. We showed the documentary four times in June and ever since then we’ve had requests to show it again.   Jane will share the story of how she began the research that led to writing Invisible Women, introduce the documentary and take questions afterwards. 

The documentary received the coveted Emmy Award in the Historical and Cultural Program category.  Emmys, which are TV's equivalent of the Oscars, are given by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.  For a snapshot of what the documentary is about, you can check out a trailer on YouTube

Guests tonight will be treated to appetizers and a celebratory toast of Prosecco.   There is no charge to attend the showings, but reservations are a must.   Please call the restaurant at 231-994-2400 or visit our webpage at

Jane’s book will also be available for purchase and she’ll be happy to autograph them for you! Or, you can purchase Invisible Women: Forgotten Artists of Florence through Amazon by clicking on this link.
