Bestselling novelist Mary Kay Andrews is returning to Browseabout! She'll be appearing to discuss her new cookbook, The Beach House Cookbook.

You don't have to own a beach house to enjoy these recipes. All you need is an appetite for delicious, casual dishes, cooked with the best fresh, local ingredients and presented with the breezy flair that make Mary Kay Andrews' novels a summertime favorite at the beach.

From an early spring dinner of cherry balsamic-glazed pork medallions and bacon-kissed Brussels sprouts to Fourth of July buttermilk-brined fried chicken, potato salad, and pudding parfaits to her New Year's Day Open House menu of roast oysters, home-cured gravlax, grits 'n greens casserole, and lemon-cream cheese pound cake, this cookbook will supply ideas for menus and recipes designed to put you in a permanently carefree, coastal state of mind all year long.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 27th, beginning at 1:00 PM. We'll be serving several of the recipes found in the book. Though the focus will be on The Beach House Cookbook, Mary Kay will also be happy to sign copies of her novels.

Come join our teen book club! The selection for June's discussion is The Sledding Hill by Chris Crutcher.

Eddie hasn't had an easy year. First his father dies. Then his best friend Billy accidentally kicks a stack of Sheetrock over on himself, breaking his neck and effectively hitting tilt on his Earthgame.

Eddie and Billy were inseparable. Still are. Billy isn't going to let a little thing like death stop him from hanging in there with his friend. And when Eddie faces an epic struggle with the powers that be, Billy will remain right there beside him.

The book club is led by Karen Willey, an 18 year teaching veteran who has spent 17 of those years teaching Language Arts to middle school students. An avid reader herself, Karen has presented numerous times at the state wide Festival of Words conference, focusing on young adult literature. Her educational philosophy has always been to create life long readers and that continues to be her focus today, both in the classroom and in the community.

The discussion will take place on Saturday, June 10th, beginning at 11:00 AM. Snacks and drinks will also be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
