Book Club @ Kensington Library 

The READ IT & EAT book club is currently reading “Cherry Pies & Deadly Lies” a very cherry mystery by Darci Hannah and “Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe” by Heather Webber. Keep an eye out for baked goods from the books for sale over at the KCS. Kari recently made Grandma Jenn’s Door County cherry pie and it was “to die for!”

Our next meeting will be the first Saturday in June (6/1/24) at 1:30pm and we encourage those joining us to make a recipe from the book or one you feel would compliment our book selections. We can’t wait to see you for a great book discussion and tasty treats.
