How about a little mystery to kick off the summer? Our June selection is Soul Kitchen: A Novel by Poppy Z. Brite. This is a crime involving a restaurant and the main characters are chefs; the setting is New Orleans. Those of us who are familiar with NOLA’s food scene should find something familiar here. Brite’s husband is a chef, and this particular novel was finished the night before Hurricane Katrina hit.
We’ll meet to talk about this book on Tuesday, June 9th, at 6:00 PM. We’ll announce the location shortly. Until then, enjoy the book, and we look forward to seeing you!
Update (Saturday, June 6): We’re going to meet at LivonFifth in Birmingham (the very green building next to Workplay). We’ll nosh on muffalettas to keep the NOLA theme going. See you then!
