Bernardsville Public Library's book group Memoirs and Coffee will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, May 26th, at 10:30 in the Community Room. Led by Pat Kennedy-Grant, the group will discuss Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. Two contributors to the book are Steven L. Hopp, who tackled the food science and environmental issues, and Camille Kingsolver, Barbara's daughter.
The book is based on the decision of the author and her family to eat only locally grown food for a year. Catching a ride on the popular back-to-homemade/homegrown wave, Kingsolver peppers her book with historical and horticultural information about food production while chronicling her own garden's growth over a year's time. She includes musings on the food industry and sprinkles recipes here and there for good measure. Copies of the book are now available at the circulation desk.
