Mmm, mmm, good - Soup Night!!
Soup brings people together, and when people share, they get to know each other in new and wonderful ways. On Wednesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m., Portland author Maggie Stuckey will offer soup and insights from her most recent book, Soup Night: Recipes for Creating Community Around a Pot of Soup.
Her talk will appeal to anyone interested in good food, simple healthy meals, and the broad notion of building community. She will talk about the Soup Night tradition, in which neighbors all around the country are building a real sense of community through the age-old idea of getting together for a simple meal on a regular basis.
Stuckey has eleven books to her credit, including The Bountiful Container: Create Container Gardens of Vegetables, Herbs, Fruits, and Edible Flowers and 200 Tips for Growing Vegetables in the Pacific Northwest. In 2014, Soup Night won a Silver Nautilus Award, given to “books of exceptional merit that make a literary and heartfelt contribution to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change.”
This program is sponsored by the Newport Library Foundation, with support from The Whaler Motel and the 60+ Activity Center. Admission is free, and open to all. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
