CHILI FEED – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21st, COMMUNITY CENTER, WEBSTER
We’re really jazzed about this year’s Fundraiser Chili Feed! Saturday, October 21st, featuring Lucie B. Amundsen, author of a great book called Locally Laid: How We Built a Plucky, Industry-changing Egg Farm – From Scratch. The library has two copies of her book (Click HERE to go to our library catalog).
Join us in October to have some great chili and then listen to Lucie as we discover what starting a poultry business, keeping a family together, buying and selling locally, and having a good laugh (and cry) along the way have in common.
To get you thinking about October we thought it would be fun to explore some of the key themes Lucie will be talking about in October.
Let’s start with…. EGGS:
Did you know that: “pasteurized hens foraging on fresh grasses produce healthier, delicious eggs with less fat and cholesterol”? Locally Laid, Lucie Amundsen, p.4.
If you want to read more about EGGS. You might give these a try. They’re all available with your library card:
Locally Laid: How We Built a Plucky, Industry-changing Egg Farm – From Scratch. Lucie Amundsen.
- The egg and I. Betty MacDonald.
- The perfect egg: a fresh take on recipes for morning, noon, and night. Teri Lyn Fisher & Jenny Park.
- AND ONE FOR THE KIDS:
o Egg. Kevin Henkes. Three little birds crack their way out of eggs and fly away, leaving one egg sitting all alone until the three chicks come back and discover a friendly baby alligator has finally hatched.
Click HERE to learn more about this year’s Friends Larson Public Library Chili Feed Author event. Tickets are available for $8.00 in advance (at the library, Gandy Dancer Books, and the Coffee Roasters) or $10.00 at the door.
The Friends of the Larsen Family Public Library, at their May meeting, donated $1500 to the library to augment the books and materials in the children’s area. The Friends were able to raise these funds through proceeds from our monthly used book sales (held the second Saturday of each month), and from last year’s chili feed. We wish to thank all who helped make these donations possible.
