Raphael Badagliacca

Raphael Badagliacca has written two books: Father's Day: Encounters with Everyday Life (www.fathersdaybook.com) and The Yogi Poems and Other Celebrations of Local Baseball (www.yogipoems.com). A third book will be introduced at BOOKSNJ. He appeared at the Soho Playhouse in a one-man show based on his Father's Day book; one of the stories was broadcast on NPR’s WNYC. His second book inspired a workshop performance, "The Baseball Stories," and the short play “Baseball: a (Classic) Love Story” ran April 30-May 3, 2015 as part of this year’s Eclectic Evening of Shorts at Theater 54 in NYC. In previous years, this annual production included his plays “GPS” and “GPS II.” He has performed his poetry and prose in several venues in the tri-state area, including monthly performances at Monologues and Madness in NYC’s Cornelia Street Café. Poetry of his has appeared in The Sanskrit Literary Review and the Louisville Review. His theater reviews appear regularly at thefrontrowcenter.com
(http://thefrontrowcenter.com/author/raphspacegmail-com/). He writes the blog www.booksflixmix.com. On the business side, he won two Telly Awards in 2014 for videos on which he did the writing and voiceover. His latest project is the translation of a film from Sicilian and Italian into English.
