A Readable Feast - A Cookbook Book Group

Welcome to A Readable Feast: A Cookbook Book Group.

We meet the third Thursday of the month from 6:30 PM to 8 PM at the Kingston Free Library.

How it works: Read through the chosen cookbook and pick a recipe. Bring your dish to the meeting with enough for all to taste. At the end of the meeting we will discuss our dishes and the cookbooks. Below you will find a list of upcoming meeting dates and cookbooks.

To join the club or sign up for a dish, please email Britta at bobertello@skpl.org or call 783-8254 ext. 4303
