New members are most welcome. This month's selection is The Reader by Bernhard Schlink.

Looking Ahead

7pm • Kate Payne • The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen
The author of The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen shows you how to love your kitchen and learn to make creative, delicious food without breaking your budget. You can become a confident cook--even if the drawer with the take-out menus is the only part of your kitchen you currently use. Payne shows you how to master basic cooking techniques--boiling, baking, and sauteing--and simplifies the process of fancy ones, like jamming and preserving, dehydrating, braising, roasting, infusing, and pickling. With this straightforward and fun guide, you can stock up your kitchen with the ingredients, tools, and appliances you'll actually use. You'll also learn how to decode recipes and alter them to make them gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan.

3pm • Sarah Stark • Out There
Jefferson Long Soldier, a young Army veteran of Native descent returns home safely from Iraq, and is convinced that the novel he carried with him over the ocean and across the desert (One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez) saved his life. Reuniting with his family after almost four years away, Jefferson attempts to reclaim his peaceful life in Santa Fe, New Mexico. But when the heart-breaking memories of war will not be quelled, Jefferson travels south across the border to Mexico on a borrowed motorcycle to find his hero, the great writer behind the magic of the life-saving classic novel. Humorous, redemptive and awash in magical realism, Out There exalts the process of healing, the power of literature and the very real possibility of hope and love emerging amidst tragedy.
