Man cannot live by bread alone-- sometimes he needs a good book to accompany his lunch.


Book worms can get their fill at the monthly Literature for Lunch, an event by the Boise Public Library and the Boise State Department of English. The series kicked off in September, but it's never to late to join in. All books center around the theme of "Hungers, Feasts and Cultures: Food Across Global Literature.” The book club discussions are free and open to the public, and occur at the Boise Public Library (715 S Capitol Blvd.) from 12:10pm to 1 pm.


November's book to read is The Book of Salt by Monique Truong. This book centers on a Vietnamese cook who finds himself in Paris working for none other than Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. The discussion for The Book of Salt will occur on Friday, November 20.


Unable to make November's date? Then pick up December's read in preparation for the discussion on Friday, December 18. Pig Tails n' Breadfruit is the memoir of author Austin Clarke's childhood in Barbados.


You can pick up a copy of the books for a discount at Rediscovered Books (10% discount) and at the BSU Bookstore (25% discount).
