by Sarah Gardner [028.9 Gar]
Sarah Gardner's newsletter, The Literary Gathering, is the inspiration for this book about two of her passions -- reading and food. The book is designed as a guide for book groups. Gardner offers a selection of fiction and non-fiction of books with lists of discussion questions and menus with recipes. For example, Gone with the Wind inspired the brunch menu of Eggs O'Hara, Georgia Peach Bread and Frankly My Dear, I Don't Give a Ham. Other menus are based on foods mentioned in the books. Such is the case with the menu for To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout frequently mentions Lane Cake and Gardner includes a recipe for this luscious dessert. Don't belong to a book group? Pick up this book anyway. I found it to be a wonderful walk down memory lane of old favorites and a good introduction to new books. -- recommended by Donna G. - Eiseley and Walt Branch Libraries
