Recommended Reading Book Shelf

Since our print books are largely inaccessible, this month's Recommended "Reading" is all online and contains e-books plus podcasts and streaming video.

March 2020

The Recommended Reading Book Shelf for March features books on food. On display you can find cookbooks from around the world, films about food, food writing, novels, art, and books about specific foods and on the social aspects of food and cooking.  This month’s selection is just a taste--find more in HoyaSearch!

 

We want to hear from you! Send us your feedback about this month's book display.
