*Back by Popular Demand*
We select a variety of books, wrap them in brown paper and you won't know the 'identity' of your "blind date" till you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction? Funny, informative, a mystery or perhaps true-crime? With each book is a 'Rate a Date' slip. Simply say whatever you want about your date, you won't hurt our, or its, feelings. With each slip you return, you can enter our raffle for a nifty 'date-like' prize.

lib_book3 7:15 PM Evening Books with Edna Ritzenberg Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

This month's book is Fever by Mary Beth Keane.

On the eve of the twentieth century, Mary Mallon emigrated from Ireland at age fifteen to make her way in New York City. Brave, headstrong, and dreaming of being a cook, she fought to climb up from the lowest rung of the domestic-service ladder. Canny and enterprising, she worked her way to the kitchen, and discovered in herself the true talent of a chef. Sought after by New York aristocracy, and with an independence rare for a woman of the time, she seemed to have achieved the life she'd aimed for when she arrived in Castle Garden. Then one determined "medical engineer" noticed that she left a trail of disease wherever she cooked, and identified her as an "asymptomatic carrier" of Typhoid Fever. With this seemingly preposterous theory, he made Mallon a hunted woman."
