St. Matthew’s Book Club - April 20: My Life in France by Julia Child 7:00 pm in the library. Julia Child single handedly awakened America to the pleasures of good cooking, but as she reveals in this bestselling memoir, she didn't know the first thing about cooking when she landed in France. When she first arrived in 1948 with her husband, Paul, she spoke no French and knew nothing about the country itself. But as she dove into French culture, buying food at local markets and taking classes at the Cordon Bleu, her life changed forever. Julia's unforgettable story unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as a cook and teacher and writer, brilliantly capturing one of the most endearing American personalities of the last fifty years.
