Our February selection is The Book of Salt by Monique Truong, a novel is set in Paris. This is a fictional memoir of the Vietnamese chef who cooked for Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas at the famous apartment at 27 rue de Fleurus. We’re bringing the action back to California for our April meeting with Novella Carpenter’s book Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer. And for June, we’re looking to history to explore contemporary themes with John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.

Our upcoming meeting dates:

·         April 11, 2013 – Farm City, Novella Carpenter

·         June 13, 2012 – The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck
