Our Cookbook Club meets every other month (or so) to sample recipes from new cookbooks and discuss their merits. Participants will prepare, share, and sample recipes from our featured cookbook. Limited to 15 participants. Co-owner Cathy and Bookseller Karen will host the club. 

To participate, you must purchase the featured cookbook from Copperfish Books (10% Book Club discount will be applied) and RSVP for the club. You’ll select one recipe from your book (please email Cathy with your choice at least one week before the club meets to avoid duplication), prepare the dish, and bring it to the club. Bring enough for everyone to sample. Also be ready to share why you selected your recipe and any thoughts about the cookbook. Copperfish Books will supply paper plates, napkins and utensils, and we’ll have tables set up for you to place your dishes on. Seating will also be available.

Join us for a special book club just for Spooky Season! We’ll be reading The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson, in which a young woman living in a rigid, puritanical society discovers dark powers within herself. Lucy, our assistant manager (and facilitator of our Mystery and Romance book clubs) will lead the frightening discussion. Costumes are encouraged and we’ll have lusciously lurid adult beverages to sip.

Please purchase your copy of The Year of the Witching from us and let us know that you plan to attend – if you dare!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Sacred to three faiths and revered by more than half the people on the planet, Jerusalem conjures up powerful images of the celestial. Yet beneath its narrow alleys and holy places, the ancient city conceals a labyrinthine, three-dimensional time capsule recording five millennia of bustling prosperity, brutal war, and repeated religious innovation that altered the course of human history.

Since the days when Abraham Lincoln was in the White House, adventurers, archaeologists, and religious zealots have flocked here to hunt for buried treasure, unearth sacred artifacts like the Ark of the Covenant, and find proof of the Bible’s veracity. That digging to reveal the past continues today—and, in so doing, continues to alter the city’s future.

In UNDER JERUSALEM: The Buried History of the World’s Most Contested City, acclaimed journalist Andrew Lawler takes us into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City—a saga of biblical treasures, intrepid explorers, and political upheaval—and brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated this subterranean landscape.
