EPIC ANNOUNCMENT, DAHLING. READ EVERYTHING.
Last Sunday we had our 8th DaJen Eats Presents: A Dinner & A Story Book Club Meeting and it was divine. We discussed Laila Lalami's "The Other Americans" while feasting on Moroccan delights including harcha and preserves with mint tea. Did you see some of the fancy cups, dahling? Ugh!
One of the biggest takeaways of the evening's discussion was the notion that with we are essentially all "other" in one way or another. We explored the challenges that presents, and extolled its opportunities for a kaleidoscope of shared experiences.
Neeeeeext month is going to be EPIC. Yep, epic! We are celebrating the glorious treasures author Toni Morrison left us by reading one of her novels, "God Help The ." We are also celebrating local author, Kendra Lott who will be there signing copies of her newest book "Unique Eats and Eateries of Orlando." Both dandelioncafe and dajeneats are vegan eateries featured in Kendra's book. How awesomely kind of Kendra is that? So to celebrate that (we're doing a lot of celebrating, aren't we?) Dandelion Community Cafe and DaJen Eats will collaborate for this epic book club. We are still deciding on the menu (how exciting). Just know it will be tied in with both Toni Morrison's novel and Kendra Lott's book. Yeeeess So, Sunday September 8, me, you, Dandy, Toni, Kendra and some fabulous food st DaJen Eats at 5pm, yes? Of course, yes!
Get your books, dahling. Start reading. Event tickets will go on sale soon.
Let's read in Eatonville!
