Samin Nosrat- "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: The Elements of Good Cooking"

Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is a visionary new master class in cooking that distills decades of professional experience into just four simple elements, from the woman Alice waters has declared "America's next great cooking teacher."

In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. Master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time. 

Samin Nosrat is a writer, teacher, and chef. Called “a go-to resource for matching the correct techniques with the best ingredients” by The New York Times, and “the next Julia Child” by NPR’s All Things Considered, she’s been cooking professionally since 2000, when she first stumbled into the kitchen at Chez Panisse restaurant. She lives, cooks, surfs, and gardens in Berkeley, California. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is her first book.

Third Annual Benefit Dance for The Jane Lloyd Fund with The Harlem Line

One of our favorite traditions since we re-opened is to host The Jane Lloyd Fund for their annual benefit dance.  The fund was founded by the Lloyd family shortly after Jane's valiant struggle with the disease ended. The family wanted to respond to the generosity of the community who reached out when Jane was in need so that others in the community might experience the same sense of well-being in their own time of great sadness and need. The Jane Lloyd fund was established through Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation in 2006 to benefit cancer patients and their families in our area. Join us Saturday night, March, 25th along with The Harlem Line, to help raise money for a great cause. Music starts at 8:30pm, tickets are available at the door and are $15,  and all proceeds go directly to the foundation. Click here for more information.

Gayle Forman is a bestselling, award-winning author of young adult novels. LEAVE ME is her first novel for adults. Her novel If I Stay won the 2009 NAIBA Book of the Year Award and was a 2010 Indie Choice Honor Award winner. The film adaptation of If I Stay was released in 2014.

In Leave Me, every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, and every woman who has ever dreamed of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention--meet Maribeth Klein. A harried working mother who’s so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn’t even realize she’s had a heart attack.

Caroline Leavitt is at her mesmerizing best in her haunting, nuanced portrait of love, sisters, and the impossible legacy of family - CRUEL, BEAUTIFUL WORLD, her eleventh novel which examines the intricate, infinitesimal distance between seduction and love, loyalty and duty, and explores what happens when you’re responsible for things you cannot fix.

Gary Trudeau- "YUGE!: 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump"

He tried to warn us. Ever since the release of the first Trump-for-President trial balloon in 1987, Doonesbury’s Garry Trudeau has tirelessly tracked and highlighted the unsavory career of the most unqualified candidate to ever aspire to the White House. It’s all there--the hilarious narcissism, the schoolyard bullying, the loathsome misogyny, the breathtaking ignorance; and a good portion of the Doonesbury cast has been tangled up in it.

G. B. Trudeau has been drawing his Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip for more than forty years. In addition to cartooning, Trudeau has worked in theater, film, and television. He also has been a contributing columnist for the New York Times op-ed page and later an essayist for Time magazine. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. He lives in New York City with his wife, Jane Pauley, who “has far more talent than he has."

Emma Donoghue- "The Wonder"

Emma Donoghue- "The Wonder"

THE WONDER is the new riveting masterpiece from Emma Donoghue (due out on September 20 from - bestselling author of ROOM a New York Times Best Book of 2010 and a finalist for the Man Booker, Commonwealth, and Orange Prizes.

It is the compelling story of Lib Wright, an English nurse who is brought to a small Irish village to scrutinize what appears to be a miracle: Anna O’Donnell, a girl said to have survived without food for several months.  Lib soon finds herself not just responsible for the surveillance of the child, but fighting to save Anna’s life. Like she did in Room, which has spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list selling nearly 2 million copies, Donoghue again delves into the emotional life of a child and how that can be taken advantage of, or protected by, the adults who are close to them.  The Wonder is written with the same propulsive tension, providing a searing examination of faith, doubt and what nourishes us, body and soul.

Jay Mcinerney-"Bright Precious Days"

In his first novel in ten years McInerney returns to our favorite Manhattan 'it' couple from his previous two novels BRIGHTNESS FALLS and THE GOOD LIFE  - Corinne and Russell Calloway - who still feel as if they’re living the dream that drew them to New York City in the first place: book parties or art openings one night and high-society events the next; jobs they care about (and in fact love); twin children whose birth was truly miraculous; a loft in TriBeCa and summers in the Hamptons. But all of this comes at a fiendish cost. Russell, an independent publisher, has superb cultural credentials yet minimal cash flow; as he navigates a business that requires, beyond astute literary judgment, constant financial improvisation, he encounters an audacious, potentially game-changing—or ruinous—opportunity. Meanwhile, instead of chasing personal gain in this incredibly wealthy city, Corrine devotes herself to helping feed its hungry poor, and she and her husband soon discover they’re being priced out of the newly fashionable neighborhood they’ve called home for most of their adult lives, with their son and daughter caught in the balance.
