Time travel, pirates, and food! Oh my! Don’t forget to cast your vote for the third A Novel Group of Huskies food-related book, selections inspired the 2014-2015 UConn Reads text The Omnivore’s Dilemma.
Earlier this week we started polling our readers to help choose the 3rd book we’ll be taking on during 2015. Have you voted yet?
If you’re still deciding which incredible, food-themed selection you want to read with us I thought I’d offer some help in the form of a more detailed menu of choices:
- We’ve got Edible Stories by Mark Kurlansky on the list, which is a collection of short stories that use food as a centerpiece.
- Next up is The Dinner by Herman Koch, a Dutch novel translated in 2013, which presents a set of characters sharing a meal and unveiling unpleasant secrets and behaviors along the way.
- Cinnamon and Gunpowder by Eli Brown is a story about pirates and culinary delights meeting on the high seas when a female pirate kidnaps a master chef.
- The oldest novel on the list, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
