COOKBOOK CLUB:  Friday, July 10, 2020

Drawing inspiration from this year’s Summer Reading theme, we’ll turn to a book of magical realism to create our dishes. Like Water for Chocolate, by Laura Esquivel was described by the San Francisco Chronicle as a “tall-tale, fairy-tale, soap opera romance, Mexican cookbook, and home-remedy handbook all rolled into one.” Read the book for recipe ideas, or just submit a favorite Mexican recipe to share with the group. 

Please send a copy your recipe by 5:00 pm on Friday, July 10, 2020: Recipes will be published on our website the following week.


This summer, find writing inspiration in fairy tales, myths, legends & fantasy with author & writing Instructor Dr. Cristina Guarneri.

For details of your assignment, visit our Writers’ Page.  You may submit your work for critiques on the following dates: July 10, July 24, and August 7. Your completed project is due by August 21, 2020. With your permission, we’ll publish it on the Library’s website! Email:
