Books and Lectures

  • Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul in the Kitchen by Jacques Pepin - Pepin is my favorite TV chef - classic
  • Victorian Britain by Prof. Patrick N. Allitt Ph. D. - very interesting lecture on this dynamic period of history; unfortunately the library does not have volume 3
  • Casualty Figures by Michele Barrett - fascinating account of 5 shell shock victims of WWI and their fates after the war
  • Bombs Away by Harry Turtledove - starts out good as the Korean War escalates to atomic weapons but then is mostly repetitive
  • California Vines Wines and Pioneers by Sherry Monahan - stories of early California wineries
