Just a heads up that the next meeting of the book group will be Wednesday, May 14th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Rabelais, 86 Middle Street. This month we are reading The Warmest Room in the House, How the Kitchen Became the Heart of the Twentieth Century American Home by Steven Gdula. There will be a special treat this month as just a couple days after we have our meeting to discuss our ideas about the book, Gdula will be coming to Rabelais to speak and sign copies of the book. So we will all have a chance to speak directly with the author while the book is fresh in our minds. Slow Food Members get a 10% discount on the book at Rabelais.
Please remember that the book group is open to any and all, the conversations are lively and spirited, the company engaged and the book selections thoroughly democratic. Our next read will be In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. The meeting for that discussion will be set at this next gathering.
If you are mulling over joining, dive in, the water’s fine!
