JANUARY 7th AUTHOR READING & BOOK DISCUSSION OF COMPROMISE CAKE: LESSONS LEARNED FROM MY MOTHER’S RECIPE BOX
For the January meeting of Women Reading the author Nancy Spiller will join us. She will read from her poignant memoir, and will lead a discussion of the major themes of the book—mother-daughter relationships, food and family, learning to cook and the heritage of recipes. The book is available from online sellers—but if you want to learn a bit more about her memoir see the 10 minute video interview with Nancy on YouTube. Also visit the GoodReads website http://www.goodreads.com/book where one reviewer writes: “ ‘Dark Cake’ emerged as a favorite chapter for me – with Nancy facing her worst fears, wrestling with memories of her mother, and even her use of darkness and light in the chapter’s illustration … I loved that I could see Nancy in the kitchen and hear her voice so clearly throughout.”
Hope to see you tonight at 7:30pm in Hoffman Hall!
