After the unexpected death of her parents, painfully shy and sheltered 26-year-old Ginny Selvaggio seeks comfort in cooking from family recipes. (Midnight Cry Brownies -- yummy!) She learns her cooking will lure family ghosts and these ghosts leave clues to some family secrets. As Ginny deals with her loss, she faces another challenge  -- her sister wants to sell the house Ginny has ever known.

Aimee Bender

Aimee BernderWelcome, Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake! Aimee tell us about her book group of over 10 years. The first book discussion was Thomas Pynchon’s book Gravity’s Rainbow. Now, that's a heavy book, both in weight and subject! Learn how her book group broke down the 700+ page book. They definitely had a theme -- they went dancing in Gravity's Rainbow t-shirts!

Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively; Excellent Book Group Pick

I always like Penelope Lively's work. The PhotographMaking It Up, Family Album, Consequences, and her over 20 other fiction and nonfiction titles. She is a great children's books writer, as well, -- over 25 titles. But my favorite is Moon Tiger, winner of the Booker Prize, first released in 1987. Great characters and many lively topics to discuss in a reading group.
