Deliciously Fictitious Book Club: Catering to Nobody

Thursday, November 14, 2019 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
Join us every other month in Fannie's Cafe to discuss culinary-themed mysteries and sample delicious recipes from the pages of the books.

This month we'll read Catering to Nobody by Diane Mott Davidson. Catering a wake is not Goldy's idea of fun. Yet the Colorado caterer throws herself into preparing a savory feast designed to soothe forty mourners. And her culinary efforts seem to be exactly what the doctor ordered until her ex-father-in-law drops dead and Goldy is accused of putting poison on the menu.

Books are available to borrow at the Library Services Desk one month before our meeting.
