The Great American Read
Beginning May 22, PBS presents “an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience. ” The 100 List.

    10:30 am-11:30 am

    Join us for a reading and discussion of M.F.K. Fisher's Serve It Forth.  This first series of essays by the famed food writer takes readers on an animated journey through culinary history, beginning with the honey-loving Greeks and the immoderate Romans. Fisher recalls a hunt for snails and truffles with one of the last adepts in that art and recounts how Catherine de Medici, lonely for home cooking, touched off a culinary revolution by bringing Italian chefs to France. Each essay makes clear the absolute firmness of Fisher's taste--contrarian and unique--and her skill at stirring memory and imagination into a potent brew.  Copies of the book will be available at the Charlotte Senior Center and Charlotte Library prior to the start date.
