Ellen recommends "From Scratch: a memoir of love, Sicily and finding home" by Tembi Locke

Join us on Monday, November 18 to discuss From Scratch: a memoir of love, Sicily and finding home by Tembi Locke.  We meet at the Main Library at 6:30.

The author meets the love of her life while in Italy.  They marry & settle in LA, creating a rift with his traditional Sicilian family.  After a cancer diagnosis and the arrival of a daughter, their love is truly tested.  From Scratch is a beautifully interwoven story of love, death, grief, family and food.  Bonus - at the end are a collection of the author’s favorite recipes!  Tembi Locke may be a familiar face, as she’s been in numerous TV shows and movies over the last 25 years.  From Scratch is also a Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine book club pick.  This is available in print, large print, ebook and eaudio.
