misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Food for Thought: A Culinary Book Group Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Adult Services Desk   203-438-2282 x12004   
   

 We welcome you to join our new discussion group on food-related books. We’ll start with The Gastronomical Me by MFK Fisher, which is included in the compilation The Art of Eating. Fisher is widely viewed as the creator of the genre of food writing in America. Her work sets the stage for understanding food not just as sustenance or even spectacular dishes and techniques, but as a lens through which to view and understand so much about ourselves and our cultures. Our group may take on food essays, chefs’ memoirs, histories, or comprehensive overviews of a culture’s cuisine, as examples, but whichever titles we choose, we’ll explore the many ways that food expresses, affects, and brings joy to our lives.

All are 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.L

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.
