Summer is in full swing and that can only mean one thing … summer reading! I’m happy to announce the third meeting of our Friendly Planet Travel Book Club. This time, we decided to pick a region that exudes summer warmth and beauty, and the obvious choice was Italy!
There are countless books about Italy, but no one writes about this destination better than Frances Mayes, author of worldwide bestseller “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “Bella Tuscany.” Frances is the queen of Tuscan writing, and we decided to make her third Italian memoir, “Every Day in Tuscany“, the feature of our third book club.
Mayes entered a wondrous new world when she began restoring an abandoned villa in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. Her newest book offers a deeply personal account of her present-day life in her adopted hill town, sharing the delights and challenges of daily life, the pastoral pleasures of feasting from her garden, and her favorite recipes. “Every Day in Tuscany” is an inviting and authentic account of the timeless beauty and vivid pleasures of Italian life. It’ll be sure to leave you longing for the Tuscan countryside before you reach the last page!
If you’re interested in learning what it feels like to live under the Tuscan sun, pick up a copy of the book and join our discussion. We’ll explore the wonders of Tuscany on July 31 at the Jenkintown Library from 7-9 pm. Let us know if you can join us by contacting Liz Hutchins at EHutchins@FriendlyPlanet.com or by calling 800-555-5765 Ext. 214. Please RSVP no later than Friday, July 27 so we know how many to expect.
Hope to see you there. Ciao!
