Thursday, August 6, was dream-lake afternoon. The water, placid and aglow, was the ideal surface for hundreds of gulls, and an occasional goose, to float, dive, and harmonize. “It sounds as if the gulls are singing!” I exclaimed to my grandsons, as sympathetic vibrations replaced the usual seagull squawks.
Schwartz flew the coop, now the Coop has to fly: the Open Book Co-op. The time to join is NOW!! Shorewood’s population is educated, most residents still read actual books, many are members of book clubs, yet we no longer have a bookstore in the village, nor a gathering place of readers.
Tuesday, August 25, at 6:30 PM is your chance to meet some of us who have already joined the Co-op, to join yourself (you can also join online), and to listen to two famous cookbook writers. The title is “Mastering the Art of Cookbook Writing.” If you’re like me, you don’t want to master that particular art, might not even want to use a cookbook, but certainly you love to eat. Read below about the two authors, and, like me, I’m sure you’ll look forward to coming!
