Join us on August 19th for the 12th event in our Yellow Chair Series. Author of The Kitschen Daughter will be interviewed. Jael McHenry's The Kitchen Daughter is a feast of words - an utterly original, page-turning debut about greif, self-discovery, and what it means to be normal. If you enjoyed Julie & Julia or Like Water For Chocolate, this is another one not to be read on an empty stomach. Free Even, reservations requested.
After the unexpected death of her parents, painfully shy and sheltered 26-year-old Ginny Selvaggio seeks comfort in cooking from family recipes. But the rich, peppery scent of her Nonna's soup draws an unexpected visitor into the kitchen: the ghost of Nonna herself, dead for twenty years, who appears with a cryptic warning ("do no let her...") before vanishing like steam from a cooling dish.
