The Food of a Younger Land by Mark Kurlansky

In 1939, the Federal Writers’ Project of the WPA started a new project: sending writers out across the country to document “American cookery and the part it has played in the national life.” Through 1941, the writers submitted copy covering a wide array of regional foodways, from Georgia possum to Minnesota lutefisk, New York soda-luncheonette slang to “a Los Angeles sandwich called a taco.” The project was supposed to culminate in a book entitled America Eats, but the bombing of Pearl Harbor put an end to it. The writings sat in an archive at the Library of Congress until bestselling food writer Mark Kurlansky selected a number of them for this collection. 

Copies are now available at the library. Ask for them at the Circulation Desk. New readers are always welcome. No registration required.

lib_book_quill 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM A.M. Book Group - Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Mary Rindfleisch   203-438-2282   mfrind@ridgefieldlibrary.org
   

The AM Book Group meets the fourth Wednesday of the month (except December)  

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (1818; 220 pages). Clergyman’s daughter Catherine Morland loves the suspense and romance of the popular Gothic novels of the day and expects to find similar excitement when she is invited to visit some new friends at the forbidding Northanger Abbey, their family estate. Austen adds a satirical send-up of the Gothic sensibility to her usual keen observation of human frailties.

An additional discussion will be held at 7:00 PM on the same day; both are part of All about Jane: A Celebration of 200 Years of Jane Austen, a two-month exploration of the life, world and works of the beloved novelist. All About Jane is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library.
