Last week I let you know about the amazing contest that is underway to celebrate the paperback publication of The Recipe Club by Andrea Israel and Nancy Garfinkel - in which one lucky book club will win dinner out in their town plus a Skype call with the authors and signed books for their entire group! Now I'm thrilled to report that Andrea and Nancy will also be joining me on Book Club Girl on Air on Wednesday, November 3rd to discuss their unique new novel.
Lifelong friends Lilly and Val are united as much by their differences as by their similarities. In childhood, "LillyPad" and "ValPal" form an exclusive two-person club, writing intimate letters in which they share hopes, fears, deepest secrets . . . and recipes—from Lilly's "Lovelorn Lasagna" to Valerie's "Forgiveness Tapenade." The Recipe Club sustains Lilly and Val's bond across the decades: through the challenges of independence, the joys and heartbreaks of first love, and the emotional complexities of family relationships, identity, mortality, and goals deferred—until the fateful day when an act of kindness becomes an unforgivable betrayal.
Browse inside The Recipe Club, take a look at the reading group guide, and check out the authors' website for tips on how to start your own recipe club, quizzes and much, much more. Set your reminder for the show on November 3rd here and return to that same link to listen live that night. I have 10 copies of The Recipe Club to give away to the first 10 people who comment that they'd like to participate in the show on the 3rd.
