Dear Reader, if you want to get crazy and mix your two favorite things, food and literature, look no further than the Library. We actually have a subject heading for that: Literary Cookbooks. Cook like you are in Bon Temps, Narnia, or Jane Austen’s England. Below are some highlights from our collections.
