It's a collision of food and fiction

Apple Pie cover

The Newcastle Public Library is taking children on an exploration of literature through their taste buds in its program Book 'N' Cook, at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28.

The program will feature a book or books and a recipe to complement what's being read, and participants get the chance to make the dish and then eat it at the library. This month's theme is apple pies, and the selected book is How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman.

Ages 11 and under are invited to attend. So enough ingredients are on hand, space is limited, so registration is required in advance.
