Author of the Month
This month instead of an author, we will be featuring cookbooks and the authors that wrote them. Here are three of the featured authors:
Michelle Lopez – Weeknight Baking - In Weeknight Baking, Lopez shares time-saving secrets, suggested staples, substitutions and tested strategies for turning out decadent treats. Featuring more than 80 recipes (including some that are gluten-free, vegan or both) for cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, muffins and more, Lopez's approach is easy to follow. For more time-intensive recipes--white wedding cake, anyone? --Lopez uses her analytic business skills to split the steps into 30-minute-or-less increments over several days for "a damn good dessert any night of the week you want one." --Melissa Firman, writer, editor and blogger
Mary Berry – Classic - This brand-new collection from her landmark new BBC One series brings together everything we love about Mary – wonderfully simple but utterly dependable recipes that are essential for every home. These are recipes everyone can enjoy cooking and eating, no matter their time, budget or confidence.
Featuring all the recipes from Mary’s new television series, each accompanied by Mary’s no-nonsense tips and techniques, this stunning step-by-step cookbook ensures perfect results every time. – Goodreads
Martha Stewart – Cookie Perfection - For cookie bakers’ novice or experienced, our latest book, Martha Stewart's Cookie Perfection, is a must-have. It has more than 100 recipes—from superlative twists on classic cookies to monumental treats to share. In addition to recipes, the book includes the elements of cookie style, how to drop, roll, slice, and shape, plus icing, piping, and other embellishments. You'll also find information on essential ingredients for cookie making and the tools you'll need to get the job done. Consider it your new manual for everything cookie related.
Every 4th Thursday of each month at 2:00 p.m., we will host an Afternoon Movie at the Library featuring a just released movie. This month, however, the movie will be the 3rd Thursday due to the Christmas holiday. This month’s feature is Overcomer. This PG rated sport’s film is a drama. Overcomer is a drama about a coach and an aspiring athlete who's pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, Coach John Harrison becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.
