Novel Noshes Thursday 10 Dec

Join us for the next meeting of Novel Noshes!

We’ll be discussing the book “The Coincidence of Coconut Cake”

by Amy E. Reichert.

From a review: “Set in the lovely, quirky heart of Wisconsin,

The Coincidence of Coconut Cake is a charming love story

of misunderstandings, mistaken identity,

and the power of food to bring two people together.”

Thursday, October 9, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. – Racine Public Library, Martin Room.

The book is “Delicious“, a work of fiction by former Gourmet Magazine editor Ruth Reichl.

From Goodreads: In her bestselling memoirs Ruth Reichl has long illuminated the theme of how food defines us, and never more so than in her dazzling fiction debut about sisters, family ties, and a young woman who must finally let go of guilt and grief to embrace her own true gifts.

Pandora’s Lunchbox:

How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal

by Melanie Warner


From Goodreads: “If a piece of individually wrapped cheese can retain its shape, color, and texture for years, what does it say about the food we eat and feed to our children?…Combining meticulous research, vivid writing, and cultural analysis, Warner blows the lid off the largely undocumented and lightly regulated world of chemically treated and processed foods and lays bare the potential price we may pay for consuming even so-called healthy foods.”
