The Slow Food Sacramento Book Club is a book club for readers who enjoy food-related literature, both non-fiction and fiction. The club meets at 6:30 pm on the second Thursday of every other month at one of our member’s homes. Everyone who attends brings an appetizer to share, and we enjoy an evening of lively literary discussion. At the close of each meeting we choose our next book based on recommendations from our members. New members are always welcome!
If you are interested in participating or if you would like more information, please contact Kathleen Albiani at email@example.com.
