On the air, in the paper

Thanks to The Birmingham News and wine columnist Beverly Taylor for a wonderful article about the Foodie Book Club! Beverly’s article also inspired the hosts of 105.5 WERC‘s morning show, Steve & Leah, to invite several foodie book club members on the air for a group interview. We had fun! Thanks to members Jason, Tina, and Sara for their time.

September: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Our September book is Aimee Bender‘s second novel: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. The reviews have been good, and so many people are buzzing about this book, we added this to our reading list on a whim. (We’ll pick up with Monsoon Diary in October.) The story is about a nine-year-old girl who discovers that when she eats, she can taste the emotions of the person who made the food.

We’ll meet at 6pm on Tuesday, September 14, at Dreamcakes Bakery, 960 Oxmoor Road in Homewood. (Mmm, lemon cupcakes!)

One more note: We’re starting to consider titles for our 2011 book selection list. If you’ve got any suggestions, leave a comment.
