Spring-Summer 2018

Food for Thought: A Literary Feast

Help yourself to a smorgasbord of food as portrayed in literature. Sample new dishes and savor old favorites.
The authors rant and rave, philosophize and poke fun at what we eat and how we eat it. Some selections are poetic, some are horrific, some are nutritious, and many are just plain delicious!
