About The Event

Facilitated by Jackie Schultz. Our bookclub choice this fall is The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender:

On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein bites into her

mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical

gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the slice. To her horror, she finds

that her cheerful mother tastes of despair. Soon, she’s privy to the secret

knowledge that most families keep hidden: her father’s detachment, her

mother’s transgression, her brother’s increasing retreat from the world.

But there are some family secrets that even her cursed taste buds

can’t discern.
