The library will be hosting a fall book discussion series entitled “Read Ingredients” beginning Tuesday, September 6 at 6:30 p.m. The series is designed to explore the two ingredients that are key to American cuisine – regional traditions and international influences. “My Life in France” by Julia Child is the first book to be discussed followed by “Food of a Younger Land”, “Animal Vegetable Miracle” and “Second Hoeing”. Wayne Deahl from Torrington returns to lead the discussions. Stop by the library soon to register and pick up the first book.
