Review


“For all who love good eating and good reading, Recipe for a Book Club offers twelve lively months of suggested readings, featured authors, and menus and recipes to make each gathering of your book discussion group a joyous occasion. “




"These two sister co-authors have selected a theme for each month of the calendar year and found a matching book for discussion. Food quotes pepper the pages. Now, add delicious recipes to match their book choices and you have a wonderful gift selection for a book lover friend. There are questions for group discussions and meals, snacks, desserts and beverages to accompany those get-togethers."

"A group of six to twelve people meet to talk about the story, the author and related topics. It makes for an interesting evening or afternoon say Mary O’Hare and Rose Storey. They have come up with a 'Recipe for a Book Club' that includes food recipes, book titles, questions and author biographies."

"'Recipe for a Book Club' leads you through the menus, recipes, suggested readings, featured authors and topical questions needed to start your own monthly book group filled with lively discussion. Not only will you participate in intelligent discourse, you’ll broaden your literary knowledge and gain culinary skills."

"Unlike other basic reading group guides, ‘Recipe for a Book Club’ combines good eating with good reading for the millions of Americans who participate in book clubs. Written by two book-and-cooking sisters who formed their own monthly reading and eating groups that continue to meet, ‘Recipe for a Book Club’ starts in January and ends in December, with a reading theme for each month and a menu and recipes to go with it, a featured favorite book and author, suggested reading list, and interesting questions to ponder and discuss. From January's theme of New Authors to December's theme of Inspiration for the new year, this attractively illustrated guide is ideal for all reading groups, whether brand-new or long-established)."

The New Year has begun and it's time to uphold that New Year Resolution to read more and join a book group. Tonight we're talking with Mary O'Hare and Rose Storey authors of 'Recipe For a Book Club - A Monthly Guide for Hosting Your Reading Group". Join us for a conversation about how to couple the perfect food with the perfect book choice'

"Lots of people organize their own book clubs and now there’s a book, 'Recipe for a Book Club,' by Mary O’Hare and Rose Storey that will help anyone who wants to start a club built around monthly themes, combined with recommendations of what to serve when everyone gets together. As the authors, sisters, say, ‘Reading a good book provides as much mental nourishment as eating a good meal.’ I have to agree!"

"Exceptional"

"If the idea of starting a book club seems daunting, put your mind to rest with a ‘Recipe for a Book Club: A Monthly Guide for Hosting Your Own Reading Group.’ According to authors Mary O'Hare and Rose Storey, it's a simple matter of picking a decent book, whipping up some snacks and having a few questions ready to kick-start conversation….The recipes…are lovely. They include everything from apricot punch to sausage gumbo."

About the Author

Mary O’Hare, a former teacher with degrees in both education and music, has always been an avid reader. While managing the challenges of corporate moves with her husband to several major metropolitan areas she remained at home to raise five children which allowed her time to pursue, through continuing education, her love of cooking and reading. She currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Rose Storey received degrees in business and marketing, and currently works as an advertising and graphic design professional for a firm located in San Francisco, California. The book club which she formed in a northern California neighborhood served as a proving ground for the ideas and suggestions that were developed in Recipe for a Book Club. She and her husband have recently re-located to Ventura, California.

Format: Hardcover
What a wonderful idea! Now you can gather a few friends together, sip a glass of wine, munch on fine food that matches your monthly theme and sit back to talk about your book selection. Mary and Rose even give you examples of the questions that could be asked and discussed. Everything you need to get yourself started for years of literary bliss, good companionship and great eating. These two sisters will get you started, and you can, with their help, sit back and do the rest with ease.

Their book is filled with quotations, yummy recipes,literary references and ideas. Novice book clubs can just follow Mary and Rose for a successful first year, and seasoned book clubs can pick and choose from these excellent suggestions.

I belong to several book groups and have purchased a copy of this book for each of them! It is fun, interesting, easy to read and the recipes are a fun addition. Loved the suggested readings, the question lists for books, and the colorful book quotes that are scattered throughout the recipes and text. Plus the nice use of color and little icons keeps the readers attention.

This book is a reference that I refer to often for great food planning ideas to go with our book club choices. I love the section on topical questions which are great to engage all members!
