The monthly gatherings are free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible. Childcare is available for $5 per child with an advance reservation. To make a reservation for childcare, please call 330-540-1480.
The evenings coincide with Lake to River Co-op’s Online Market pick-up night. If you placed an order you can pick it up then, or you can just shop in the Cafe’s new grocery store.
The selected books are a mix of fiction and non-fiction, centered around food, enjoyable for anyone who likes to read, adults or teens.
Lit Youngstown will host readings by the authors of two of the selected books. One is The Garden of the World by Lawrence Coates, a novel about a patriarchal immigrant family of winemakers in California’s Santa Clara Valley during Prohibition. Coates, of Bowling Green, Ohio, will join Youngstown novelist Christopher Barzak at Suzie’s Dogs & Drafts on October 4, 2016. In April 2017, Mark Winne, a food policy writer and activist living in New Mexico, will also give a reading in Youngstown.
The book list should be easy to find through the library, as well as the local new and used book stores.
