    "Baking Yesteryear: The Best Recipes from the 1900s to the 1980s" is a new, quirky, and thoroughly entertaining cookbook by Dylan Hollis. But how good are the recipes? We're going to find out. The book will be hanging at the reference desk (by the computers) where we can make you a copy or you can take a picture on your phone. Come by, select one that you'd like to try making, and bring samples to the event tonight. Be prepared to tell us what it was like creating it. Was it smooth sailing or full of glitches? Worth the time and effort? Will you make it again?

    A fun getaway from the kids night with grown-up discussions and built in treats!
