The Book Club Cookbook

Program Categories: * Authors and Illustrators * Cooking * Miscellaneous
Audience:adults
Description:

What are book clubs across America reading – and eating? How do successful groups create exciting meetings? And how can food add a unique and delicious dimension to discussions of literature? Join Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp, co-authors of The Book Club Cookbook, as they discuss what they learned in conversations with hundreds of book club members across America. Gelman and Krupp will share the secrets of sustaining a vital, exciting book club, and the creative ways that book clubs across the country are integrating food into their meetings. The authors will also discuss the evolutionary process of writing The Book Club Cookbook: finding the titles that make book clubs tick; pairing recipes with literature; and contacting best-selling authors who share a fascination with food.

At the end of the presentation, sample some foods from the book.

Fee:$750. In addition, the authors request reimubursement for mileage to and from the event.
