Bunch of Crocks Book Group, Sept. 17

Do you love food and books? Join our newest discussion group for foodies and combine your love of food and literature. The Bunch of Crocks book group premieres on September 17th at 12:30 for the stomach rumbling discussion of Voracious: A Hungry Reader Cooks Her Way Through Great Books by Cara Nicoletti.

As a young bookworm reading in her grandfather’s butcher shop, Cara saw how books and food bring people to life. Now a butcher, cook, and talented writer, she serves up stories and recipes inspired by beloved books; breakfast sausage in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods and chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream from Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections are just some examples.

The group will get to try a small sample of one of the delicious foods in each chosen title when they meet every month. Copies of the book can be attained through the inter-library loan system.

Book Discussion: Settled in the Wild, July 31

Read ME is a statewide program presented in partnership with Maine State Library that gets Maine’s adults all reading the same books—by Maine authors and recommended by Maine author Paul Doiron. The Auburn Public Library will make available the two books recommended by Doiron(one fiction—River Talk  by CB Anderson, one nonfiction—Settled in the Wild: Notes from the Edge of Town by Susan Hand Shetterly ) and will host book discussions on these titles.

On July 31st at 9:30 am, the public is invited to discuss Settled in the Wild. Naturalist Susan Shetterly looks at how animals, humans, and plants share the land?observing her own neighborhood in rural Maine. She tells tales of the locals (humans, yes, but also snowshoe hares, raccoons, bobcats, turtles, salmon, ravens, hummingbirds, cormorants, sandpipers, and spring peepers). She expertly shows us how they all make their way in an ever-changing habitat.
