What You Will Learn

In conjunction with Calvert County Public Library, the book club is now in session! A librarian will lead the evening’s discussion, while we’ll share a curated menu of foods mentioned in the book.

Book Selection: "From Scratch" by Tembi Locke

Summary: From Scratch chronicles three summers Tembi spends in Sicily with her daughter, Zoela, as she begins to piece together a life without her husband in his tiny hometown hamlet of farmers. Where once Tembi was estranged from Saro’s family and his origins, now she finds solace and nourishment—literally and spiritually—at her mother in law’s table. In the Sicilian countryside, she discovers the healing gifts of simple fresh food, the embrace of a close knit community, and timeless traditions and wisdom that light a path forward. All along the way she reflects on her and Saro’s incredible romance—an indelible love story that leaps off the pages.
