What's Cooking?

Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats!

This month's selection is "Jerusalem" by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, and our recipe choice is Mejadra. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch Library one month prior to the event.

The Lives They Lived: "Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman"

Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

In "Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman," Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Massie tells the story of Catherine II, a German princess from a minor noble family who became the empress of Russia and ruled for 34 years. To escape her unhappy marriage to Peter III, Catherine began to read. "She had been a bright child; her languages then were French and German, [and] she learned Russian," Massie says. "She began to read the great philosophers of the French Enlightenment. And in that way, she developed a philosophy of rule."
