TASTY READS – SLOW FOOD WESTERN SLOPE BOOK CLUB

tasty-reads-library-kioskBook Club Purpose Our intention is to make Tasty Reads educational, fun, enlightening, engaging–all core elements of Slow Food. We’ll be reading food-related books from varied categories– food & culture, novels, agriculture, food literature, how-to’s, food history, biography/personal stories and food & travel. We’ll combine meetings with food tastings, movies, and even cooking classes–it’ll be more fun than a bowl of whipped cream! Tasty Reads is open to all to participate, not just Slow Food members–so bring a friend if you like. And a side benefit is that the book club can attract more people into our Slow Food chapter, giving us a broader base from which to accomplish core Slow Food goals.

Book Club Locations Book Club meetings will take place at different venues (libraries, homes, farms, art centers, theater, etc) and be held in the middle of each month on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening from October through April.

Pinterest Check out our Book Club repository on Pinterest to see the titles we have accumulated so far for now and future reading. As you can see, these are not cookbooks. We have picked titles for the coming months. And we would like your input on other titles which intrigue you for our next season.

We work with the Delta County Library system to acquire several copies of these books via Inter Library Loan (ILL). You can go to your nearest Library and request an ILL copy, check out the book yourself (if the branch already has one on its shelf), get e-book versions (e.g., Kindle, iBooks) or purchase the book for yourself.

Contact us if you have any questions – enjoy!

Below are our book selections for the 2017-18 season starting October. Visit our Book Club Library to search through all of our past and current titles.
