Wednesday Morning Book Discussion

Our pick this month is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. Smart, warm, uplifting, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . The only way to survive is to open your heart.

Cookbook Club

Our cookbook this month is Cook's Illustrated Revolutionary Recipes: Groundbreaking Techniques, Compelling Voices, One-of-a-Kind Recipes.

From the summary:

"Anyone who has ever made a recipe from Cook's Illustrated knows that we do things differently. Our testing leaves no culinary stone unturned, and this has led to some pretty surprising discoveries. This book is built upon those- recipes that are not just foolproof but have changed the way America cooks. Examples range from hard-boiled eggs that aren't actually boiled to perfectly pan-seared steaks that start in the oven, plus secret ingredients ranging from baking soda to dried milk powder to gelatin. We've made international favorites like Dolsot Bibimbap accessible for the home kitchen by cooking ours family-style in a Dutch oven, but we've also challenged traditional wisdom on the simplest fare like whole roast chicken; ours is butterflied and cooked under the broiler for chicken perfection in under an hour. Alongside these recipes and many more we've included the smart, funny essays that detail the fascinating path of how each recipe came to be, complete with bursts of insight and wrong turns, plus sidebars, helpful illustrations, and gorgeous full-page photos, all to tell the story of what Cook's Illustrated does best."

Everyone is welcome but you must register and let us know what recipe you will be bringing. Copies of the cookbook will be available one month prior to the meeting.

Supported by the Friends of the Library.

Our October pick is The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff.

Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant by a Nazi soldier and being forced to give up her baby. She lives above a small rail station, which she cleans in order to earn her keep… When Noa discovers a boxcar containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she is reminded of the child that was taken from her. And in a moment that will change the course of her life, she snatches one of the babies and flees into the snowy night. Noa finds refuge with a German circus, but she must learn the flying trapeze act so she can blend in undetected, spurning the resentment of the lead aerialist, Astrid. At first rivals, Noa and Astrid soon forge a powerful bond. But as the facade that protects them proves increasingly tenuous, Noa and Astrid must decide whether their friendship is enough to save one another—or if the secrets that burn between them will destroy everything.

Books are available at the circulation desk one month before the discussion. No registration necessary and everyone is welcome!

Our pick this month is One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus.

Based on an actual historical event but told through fictional diaries, this is the story of a remarkable woman who travels west in 1875 and marries the chief of the Cheyenne Nation. One thousand white women begins with May Dodd's journey west into the unknown. Yet the unknown is a far better fate than the life she left behind. Committed to an insane asylum by her blue-blood family for the crime of loving a man beneath her station, May finds that her only hope of freedom is to participate in a secret government program whereby women from the 'civilized' world become the brides of Cheyenne warriors. What follows is the story of May's breathtaking adventures: her brief, passionate romance with the gallant young army captain John Bourke; her marriage to the great chief Little Wolf; and her conflict of being caught between two worlds, loving two men, living two lives.

Copies of the book are available one month in advance at the circulation desk. No registration necessary and everyone is welcome!
