The May cookbook selection is Master of the Grill: Foolproof Recipes, Top-Rated Gadgets, Gear & Ingredients Plus Clever Test Kitchen Tips & Fascinating Food Science by America's Test Kitchen. Copies will be available from the Circulation Desk starting April  27th. Please register through the library event calendar or contact Laurie by phone (781-848-0405, x4430) or email (lcavanaugh@braintreema.gov) to join the group.
