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.
