    Contact: Information Services Department   847-677-5277 x 230   infoservices@lincolnwoodlibrary.org
   

This adult book discussion will be offsite at the Lincolnwood Community Center and features Delicious by Ruth Reichl.

When Billie Breslin abandons college to work as assistant to the editor of Delicious! magazine, she’s immediately known for her superhuman palate: she can taste any dish and list its ingredients and suggest the flavors it needs. She’s known for another trait, too: Billie does not cook. When Delicious! is unceremoniously folded by its parent publisher, Billie is the sole employee kept on to honor the magazine’s guarantee: “Your money back if the recipe doesn’t work.” Between phone calls from wacky subscribers, alone in the yawning old mansion headquarters, Billie discovers a hidden room and a cache of quirkily cataloged letters from a young girl to Delicious! writer James Beard during WWII. In the search for each letter and the young letter writer herself, Billie finds a purpose and a heroine, and gathers the courage to face the past she’s running from. There is indeed a secret readers may quickly guess behind Billie’s fear of the kitchen, but Reichl fills her plump novel with plenty—rich characterization, a bright New York setting, transcendent discussions of taste and food—to distract from predictability.

This book discussion at L.Woods features: H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald.

Following the sudden death of her father, British author Macdonald tried staving off deep depression with a unique form of personal therapy: the purchase and training of an English goshawk, which she named Mabel. Although a trained falconer, the author chose a raptor both unfamiliar and unpredictable. “The hawk was everything I wanted to be: solitary, self-possessed, free from grief, and numb to the hurts of human life,” she writes. As a devotee of birds of prey since girlhood, Macdonald knew the legends and the literature, particularly the cautionary example of author T.H. White, whose 1951 book The Goshawk details his own painful battle to master his title subject. Writing with breathless urgency, Macdonald broadens her scope well beyond herself to focus on the antagonism between people and the environment. Whether you read it as a personal story or nature writing, H is for Hawk is poignant, beautiful, and absorbing.
