The Slackers Book Club

When? Whenever! Slackers is a self-service book club and open to all readers. There are no Zoom meetings to attend, no people to talk to, no questions to answer! Maybe you'll love the book, maybe you'll hate the book, heck maybe you won't even finish the book - that's ok! The Slackers Book Club is judgement-free (and couldn't we all use a little more of that these days?)!

bookDecember's Slackers are reading My Life In France by by Alex Prud'homme and Julia Child. 

Although she would later singlehandedly create a new approach to American cuisine with her cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking and her television show The French Chef, Julia Child was not always a master chef. Indeed, when she first arrived in France in 1948 with her husband, Paul, who was to work for the USIS, 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 with her newfound passion for cooking and teaching. Julia’s unforgettable story—struggles with the head of the Cordon Bleu, rejections from publishers to whom she sent her now-famous cookbook, a wonderful, nearly fifty-year long marriage that took the Childs across the globe—unfolds with the spirit so key to Julia’s success as a chef and a writer, brilliantly capturing one of America’s most endearing personalities. - Amazon
