Join Annie this month to play a game about the book "Pie" by Sarah Weeks. We'll sample Alice's Apple Pie recipe, and the winner of the game will take a copy of the book home to keep! Feel free to bring in a copy of your favorite recipe(s) and we'll swap recipes at tonight's meeting as well. Pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk. Copies will be available beginning 10/9.

Book Blurb: When Alice's aunt Polly, The Pie Queen of Ipswitch, passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous piecrust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily fat, remarkably disagreeable cat, Lardo...and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice. Suddenly, the whole town is wondering how you leave a recipe to a cat. Everyone wants to be the next big pie-contest winner, and it's making them pie-crazy. It's up to Alice and her friend Charlie to put the pieces together and discover the not-so-secret recipe for happiness: Friendship. Family. And the pleasure of doing something for the right reason.
