Tuesday 02.12 6p
CookBookClub with Amy
Barbara's Bookstore Hawthorn

A chef-turned-bookseller, Amy's love of books got her into cooking. In high school, she didn’t get into an art class so, instead, she read and watched Julie and Julia. She was instantly hooked on the idea of cooking through an entire cookbook. To her mother’s delight Amy cooked dinner every night and loved it so much that she decided to attend college and study Culinary Arts.

The CookBookClub will meet twice a month, the second and fourth Tuesdays. The first meeting of each month will be a general background of the cookbook, author, and type of food. The group will select recipes to make and bring to the second meeting of each month.

The Raven Tower

a Spotlight Review by Kody Young

In a stylized turn away from her usual form, New York Times bestseller Ann Leckie gives us an impressive venture into the world of LGBTQ fantasy with her fifth novel The Raven Tower.

A welcomed and original take on the fantasy genre as a whole, The Raven Tower immerses the reader in a world of ancient gods and their battles for power and the significance of spoken language. Told in interweaving segments presented from both first and second perspectives, Leckie tells the tale of The Strength and Patience of the Hill, a large sphere of black stone, a God ancient as the earth.
