Cookbook Club kickoff web graphicA new book discussion group with the main focus on cookbooks will meet monthly at Huntington City-Township Public Library. A special appearance by author Kayleen Reusser will help launch the new cookbook club’s first meeting, to be held at 6pm on Thursday, April 24, with a demonstration and tasting of healthy Cuban cookery.

Offering more than just an opportunity to salivate over the latest cookbook, this brand new book group serves up a venue for patrons to peruse recipes and discuss cookbooks from soup to nuts, devouring the classics and the hottest trends. Every month, members will discuss a different theme in cookbooks, cooking methods, or styles of food and cooking, such as seasonal recipes, ethnic/cultural foodways, local & regional food, and many more, focusing on recipes doable for the average home cook. Each meeting will feature a tasting of various recipes that correspond with that month’s cookbook theme.

Library staff members began planning a Cookbook Club for the Huntington community after hearing about other libraries’ success with the same sort of program, and hope the program will help highlight HCTPL’s extensive cookbook collection, which fills rows of bookshelves at the Main Library and is perennially popular with patrons.

Meetings will be held the fourth Thursday of every month, at 6 p.m. Registration is appreciated – for more information, visit the library’s website at, email, or contact the HCTPL Main Library at 260-356-0824.  The Main Library is located at 255 West Park Drive, Huntington.
