Tasty Reads--A Thousand Days in Venice

Italian cooking in conjunction with OBOC’s 2017 selection Wolf’s Mouth

Tasty Reads, a book group for readers who like to cook, will focus on A Thousand Days in Venice:  An Unexpected Romance by Marlena de Blasi at their Tuesday, October 10 meeting at noon in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room.


Marlena is a divorced American chef, traveling through Italy, speaking only food-related Italian.  Fernando is a local bank manage in Venice, who knows little English, and who falls in love with Marlena at first sight.  Theirs is an unlikely love story, held together by a love of Italian food.


This memoir has been chosen in conjunction with One Book One
