Tuesday, Feb. 1: Author Suzanne Schlosberg

Tuesday, February 1, 6:30 p.m.

Join us at Camalli Book Company as Suzanne Schlosberg discusses her new cookbook! Rumor has it there'll be food samples, and Camalli will provide some wine for our guests 21 and over.

Forget about the same old boring pasta salad or tuna casserole when you need to bring dinner to exhausted new parents, care for a friend recovering from surgery, or contribute to a business breakfast.
Sara Quessenberry and Suzanne Schlosberg offer 125 great new recipes inside THE GOOD NEIGHBOR COOKBOOK. Uniquely divided by occasion rather than food category, chapters include: Get Well Soon, Bringing Home Baby, Welcome to the Neighborhood, Novel Ideas for Book Club, Block Parties, Barbeques and Family Get-Togethers, and Meet and Eat. In addition to flavorful and health-conscious recipes, THE GOOD NEIGHBOR COOKBOOK also includes tips for preparing food ahead of time or freezing dishes for later. More than just a potluck cookbook, THE GOOD NEIGHBOR COOKBOOK is timely and relevant for today's "potluck economy."

These instructor-led courses (organized by Bend Parks & Rec) are held in a relaxed, book club-style setting and give you valuable methods to:

  • Creatively analyze literature
  • Refresh or gain knowledge of literary terms, devices, and techniques so you can articulate what you see and feel when you read
  • Examine book content to find connection and meaning to real-life experiences, giving you new ways to think about what you gain from a novel
