Reading at the Table: Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris



Admission: Free

We’re taking a break for the summer, until we meet again in September. Our summer reading assignment:

By the author of “Chocolat”, this story is set in the same small French village of Lansquenet. Trapped between an unresolved past and a humdrum present, suffering from writer’s block and the beginnings of alcoholism, Jay has lost his bearings. He gives up his glamorous London lifestyle and escapes to a half-derelict farmhouse in this remote village where two mysteries await him; a ghost, and Marise, a reclusive widow with ghosts of her own . Gardening, wine, and a touch of magic come together to help Jay find himself.

We’ll gather at the home of one of our readers to talk about the book and share our own culinary creations inspired by the reading. For more information, send an email to [email protected], with “Reading” in the subject line.
